OH FLORENCE by Pat Walker

Project Description: Editor

Early Australian Nursing- a memoir

With its title as a dedication to Florence Nightingale who was committed to the care of wounded army personnel during the Crimean War in the 1850s, and who was an inspirational figure to the author, Oh Florence enlightens the reader as to what was required in trauma nursing care before the development of the sophisticated drugs and surgical methods available in modern times. In a world without plastic and very little by way of synthetic material, the methodical recycling of linen, glass, and rubber was taught religiously. The achievements of the medical profession were remarkable under those conditions and these practices could go a long way in teaching our current society about reusing, recycling, and making the absolute best of what is available.

The Accidental Anarchist by Bryna Kranzler

The Accidental Anarchist

Project Description: Completed a manuscript appraisal, followed by mid-level copy edit on this wonderful book.

Bryna Kranzler,The Accidental Anarchist, April 2010: “I hadn’t been planning to hire an editor to read my book, and had little time or money to commit for it. I asked for a “top level” review — what works, what doesn’t work, where can I cut, what do I need to add, etc. Cerian read the description of what I wanted, we discussed it, and she sent me a report of that type that she had written for someone else, which made clear she understood what I needed. She was also sensitive to my compressed time frame. Her final report definitely showed that she “got” it. I have already hired her a second time, this time to proofread the manuscript, and have referred one of my writer friends to her, without reservation. She is not only excellent at what she does, but cares about the work, itself, and the person behind it. A real gem; I feel lucky to have found her.”

The Accidental Anarchist

Book Description
By the time he was twenty-five years old, Jacob Marateck had been a Jewish officer in the notoriously anti-Semitic Russian army during the Russo-Japanese War, a revolutionary who sought to overthrow the Czar, and sentenced to death three times. After avoiding the firing squad for the final, unlikely time, he escaped from a Siberian forced labor camp with Warsaw’s colorful “King of Thieves.” Together, the two struggled to survive and obtain false papers to travel home while avoiding the Secret Police. Told from Marateck’s uniquely humorous perspective, The Accidental Anarchist is the remarkable, true story of an ordinary man made extraordinary by participating in the history-making events of the 1900s in Russia and Poland. Throughout all the hardships he endured, he never lost his optimism, which was key to his survival.
