Rosemary’s first job was as an editor on Grove’s Dictionaries of Music, which launched her career in academic and reference publishing. After four years as a lecturer in publishing at Oxford Brookes University, she became chief copy-editor of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography – for which, in 2005, she was awarded an MBE. She became managing editor at Thames & Hudson in 2007, where she gained experience of trade publishing.
She now works as a freelance editor, and as a teacher of copy-editing, proofreading and freelance management for PTC, the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and corporate clients.
