Testimonials

Suzy Pope, Travel Writer and Novelist

"I’m a published travel writer and I’ve relied on Rosie’s editing skills for the past five years. Her keen eye and attention to detail has ensured everything I send out is word-perfect, from newspaper articles to competition winning pieces. Recently I used her developmental editing service for my psychological thriller manuscript and she was amazing, showing me where the action needed to pick up on the page, helping me restructure the twist so it’s perfect and also letting me know when something was working well, which was incredibly helpful and motivating.
