Do you want your words to wow?
Then you need an editor. A respected professional. Someone with the skills and training and experience to polish your writing until it shines.
And that’s where I come in…
I’m Charlie Wilson, and I help clients all over the world – authors and publishers, companies and charities, government bodies and educational institutions – to prepare their text for publication. Since I founded my business in 2005, I’ve edited everything from white papers to reports, brochures to websites, articles to theses – and books, more than 1,000 books.
On this website you’ll find details of my services: critiquing, developmental editing, copy-editing and proofreading. If you have any questions or would like a quotation for your project, please feel free to get in touch.

Charlie was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her professionalism, expertise and advice were invaluable on what was a difficult project and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!

Charlie has passion for her work and it shows. She is thorough, exact, accommodative, imaginative and an absolute pleasure to work with.

If you want your books to shine, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve worked with Charlie on all of my books and she’s brought each one to a higher level. I can’t thank her enough and recommend her without reservation.
CHRISTOPHER GREYSON, AUTHOR (INDIE)
I loved working with Charlie. Her edits made my book the best it could be, so when Little, Brown/Corsair published Being Brooke Simmons as part of a three-book deal, there were hardly any revisions to do thanks to her!
KAREN CLARKE, AUTHOR (LITTLE, BROWN)
