Nur Akman
I'm new and I currently have very hectic life. She made the whole process easy, smooth and stress free. It was what I really needed. Very gentle and humble way talked to me. Identified key points to clarify more in organized and clear way. It was pleasure to working with her.

Nur Akman, October 2021


Jon Barron
This was a major project--a 1300 page book on health and nutrition. Sophie went above and beyond to get this done. Her edits significantly improved the book.

Jon Barron, March 2021


Jon Barron
My book was long, about 390,000 words and contained sections of highly technical material on health and nutrition. Sophie did a great job at identifying where readers might get lost in those sections and helped make them more understandable. I would highly recommend her.
