I'm a self-employed editor, proofreader, localiser and transcriber (who happens to have fought high cholesterol and won) and I'm passionate about sharing the lessons I've learned along the way to help other people.
My books use my own personal experience to show you how you can achieve similar results. No gimmicks, nothing to download or buy (except for the books), no schemes to join, just good, old-fashioned common sense. I tell you exactly what I did, and share my experiences, good and bad, and I try to provide some useful resources, too, where you can find more information.
I hope you enjoy reading my books. As an independent author, I don't have a huge marketing machine behind me. So if you read and like one of my books, please consider submitting a review, and sharing your purchase on your social networks - thank you!
Do you fancy a career as a transcriber? Are you sure you're suited for it? What tools do you need? How do you attract clients and do a professional job? What hints and tips can save you time and optimise your income as a transcriber?

In May 2010 I was diagnosed with high cholesterol. By August 2010 it was coming down and by March 2012 it was staying at a level considered safe by my doctor, all without the use of statins.
Once my diet and exercise plan had worked, I wrote it all down to help other people. Here's how it worked for me, plus help on eating out and other choices.
In December 2011 I stopped being part-time employed / part-time self-employed and took the big, exciting (and scary) step into full-time self-employment. Except it wasn't scary, because I'd worked, planned, set goals and knew when it was time to do it. In this book I share exactly how I got to that stage. No tricks, no schemes to buy into, just solid and proven information and advice.
