Here's what our clients have to say

  • Olive undertook an editorial review of a manuscript that I am working on. I needed a professional opinion on style, grammar and structure. She responded quickly and pointed me in the right direction. Her skills as a writer and editor are evident and I am sure that the advice and encouragement she has given me thus far will enable me to fulfil my writing potential.

  • I would recommend Olive highly, she is a consummate professional with a keen eye for detail. She also has a warm and friendly approach. Signing up for the writing course and having her review my work has been invaluable. I have learned so much more about the craft and am sure I will continue to do so under her influence.’
