The devil is in the details

Our story

Helen has a BA in English Literature and an MA in Medieval Studies from the University of Bristol, as well as an MA in Creative Writing (Scriptwriting) from the Open University and a PhD in Early Modern History from UCL, where she remains an honorary research associate.  She has published in various forums and proofread professionally since 2010.  She currently lives in Kenya with her husband and two small children. In addition to her academic research she is currently pursuing a career in screenwriting.

Lynne has worked as a lecturer, researcher and PhD supervisor. She has Masters degrees in education and creative writing and a PhD looking at mature students in higher education. She is a published author and editor. Lynne loves deadlines and is particularly keen to support other authors with proof reading and research.

We are a mother and daughter team who have collaborated on a range of projects - academic and creative - since 2013. We are currently awaiting the publication of an historical biography with Pen and Sword.

As researchers and writers ourselves we understand the importance of making every word count and completing the final polish.  We're here to help.  Contact us or click below to explore the range of services we offer to support writing and research.
