I hired Sofia to proof read my book ‘Scottish Myths & Legends’. She was a joy to work with. Her website have me a good picture of her interests and experience, and her communication and turnaround were very speedy. The work itself was excellent and very competitively priced. I’ll definitely be working with her on my next project.
