Ruth Boyes

Project Editor, Education

Job description: Working closely with a range of education publishers, I manage the copy-editing, proofreading and collation of corrections for both primary and secondary school resources, overseeing editorial stages from developed manuscript through to final files.

Favourite book: The House of Niccolò series. These well-researched historical novels are impossibly clever, with fantastically crafty characters and intricate plot lines.

Hobbies: One of my favourite pastimes is fell bagging, I enjoy walking and my holidays are often spent hiking in the Lake District.

If I were an animal, I would be an … otter because they always seem to be loving life!
