I am a proofreader specialising in fiction, including children’s books. I love to smooth out and polish fiction writing, to make the story sing out with a clear voice.
I also work on non-fiction. My specialist areas are cookery, sport and business, 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.

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!
