I was fortunate enough to have Rebecca Burton as the Editor of my recent text, SIDS Sudden Infant and Early Childhood Death: The Past, the Present and the Future … I have been involved with a wide range of publishers over the years and am delighted to be able to say that working with Rebecca was a pleasure. The book progressed very well right from the beginning, with a lot of consultation and discussion which has resulted in, I think, a very impressive-looking volume.

Working with Rebecca Burton on Publishing Research in English as an Additional Language: Practices, Pathways and Potentials, a volume I co-edited with Margaret Cargill, was one of the most satisfying experiences I have had with a publishing editor. Rebecca combines tact and meticulousness with the ability to gently nudge authors into making the necessary changes to their texts. I know all the contributors to the volume felt, as I did, that their chapters had been greatly improved by Rebecca’s suggested corrections and modifications. It was wonderful for us all to feel we were in such safe hands.
