I am a copyeditor and proofreader. I specialise in editing crime fiction, thrillers and mysteries. I love the suspense and plot-driven nature of these stories.
If you’re a self-publishing fiction writer, no need to worry what readers are going to think of your English, because I can smooth any rough edges off your stories before you release them into the wild.
Creative storytellers, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether your grammar, spelling or punctuation is good enough; your business is coming up with spellbinding tales that keep us gripped.
It’s my business to make sure your readers aren’t tripped up by technical errors in your English, to help them stay immersed in the story, and keep them coming back for more.
I do that by providing a user-friendly, unbiased, detailed look at your manuscript.
I also work on non-fiction. My specialist area is cookery, but I can apply my skills to a wide variety of projects in differing subject areas.
My previous work background is in financial administration, but I’ve also worked as a director for sporting and IT-related companies.

Sharon’s work is excellent. She corrects all the silly mistakes that I don’t notice and corrects punctuation and grammar. She researches all the industry-specific terminology and trade names so that my documents look professional.

Sharon did a wonderful job. She paid attention to the tiniest details in the texts. And it was exactly what was needed in the project. Furthermore, her helpful explanations in her queries and comments allowed me to make informed decisions. Very impressive work.

Sharon was a dream to work with. The assignment was completed to the highest standard and she added to the work in a way that was extremely helpful. We will be working together again in the near future, I’m sure.

Amjad Riaz, independent technical author
Sharon is absolutely fantastic. I had to write a professional article for my business. She instantly understood exactly what I was looking for and gave suggestions yet allowed me to make my own decisions to still write my article in my own style correctly. As someone who really struggles with grammar, spelling, words and writing I found Bedwas Editorial Service to be extremely helpful. The proofreading service I received was amazing and the timescale and communication was superb. I would highly recommend using this service. Thank you!
