About our guest-host Jean O’Sullivan.
Jean O’Sullivan lives in Cork with her two sons and dog. It all started when she won a prize for writing a poem in first class and hasn’t stopped reading and writing since! Her interest in editing started then too. She was the one who would point out the teacher’s misspellings on the board… Jean’s eldest was born in 1998 with a heart condition and cerebral palsy. Between then and 2012 she had plenty of time to read sitting in Enable Ireland and Crumlin waiting rooms for his appointments and therapies.
Having had a hard time reading books once more than an occasion typo was spotted, she decided to train as an editor and proofreader to prevent other readers being blindsided by such things. She returned to education, studying business, editing and proofreading. Red Pen Edits was born in 2015. Since then she has worked with a varied and diverse range of clients and professionals alike. Her specialties include: fiction flow and structure, preserving the authors voice and timelines. Professional and self-development books are among her favourites to work on, with a grá for chick lit or romantic fiction – or whatever it’s called this year!
