‘I’ve been really pleased to add Tania to my pool of proofreaders for fiction. She is always completely professional, punctual and precise in her work. I know I can always rely on Tania’s eagle eyes and thoughtful comments to improve a manuscript beyond merely picking up typos. I’m very happy to recommend Tania to anyone looking for a keen proofreader.’
Emma Grundy Haigh, Editorial Director, Joffe Books


‘Tania completed a proof read within good time and in good detail. Her edits were thorough, demonstrating both her experience and her in-depth knowledge of proof reading. In particular, I was impressed by her dedication to keeping the manuscript consistent, with meticulous page references of any differences between spellings throughout the manuscript. I would feel confident working with her again.’
