My name is Sharon Gray and I proofread other people's writing in a smallish village in the South Wales Valleys.

I provide a very user-friendly, unbiased proofread for a detailed look at your text.

I am a qualified accounting technician and I have business experience at directorship level so I am very familiar with the vocabulary of finance.

I worked in professional and academic sports environments, in administration and management roles, for 20 years. Working in these, sometimes high-pressured, businesses has made me adept at producing high-quality work to extremely tight deadlines.

I've spent the last 10 years working as an interviewer for the National Centre for Social Research, one of the UK's largest social research institutions.

I am an entry-level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading and have completed their Introduction and Headway courses. I abide by their strict Code of Practice, which can be viewed by clicking on their logo above.

I am trained in the use of BSI editing symbols, Adobe Comment Tools and MS Word Track Changes, but I'm perfectly happy to discuss your project with you, to tailor my work to whatever suits you best.

My passion has always been food writing (from quite an early age, my preferred bed-time reading was cookbooks).

My specialist areas are food writing, financial reports, business plans, sports reports and social sciences.

My favourite fiction genres are fantasy and sci-fi, steampunk, crime and police procedurals.
