About

Hi, It’s nice to meet you!

I’m Steph and since I was young, I’ve known there’s nothing quite like the feeling of a book, truly seeing you. In finding words that you can relate to. Words help us escape to another world for a few hours. It’s a joy to help readers find these words through the books I review and to support authors through my editorial services.

About the orange typewriter…

If you follow me on Instagram, or you’ve been following this blog for a little while, you’ve probably seen an orange typewriter. It’s even made it’s way into my logo!

I’ve always loved things that feel old, retro and vintage. So I’ve often admired typewriters for their beauty as well as the romantic visions they’d inspire in me of writers tapping away at their next great literary work.

When I took my freelance writing and editing full-time part way through 2020 (I’d been doing it as a side hustle since early 2019), I saw an orange typewriter on Facebook Marketplace and I fell in love.

I took it home with me, marking the moment of finally getting to pursue my love of stories as a full-time job. I’m so thankful that I get to help others pursue, and reach their dreams too!

Who is Steph Huddleston?

That’s me! Thank you for visiting my website and blog. I’m a freelance writer, fiction editor and book reviewer.

As a writer I’m passionate about helping individuals and businesses find the best words to express themselves. I offer a number of writing and editing services suitable for individuals, businesses and aspiring authors.

I regularly review books upon author and publisher request. If you’re interested in working with me to review your book, please read my review policy.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with a range of clients on different editing projects. I specialise in fiction manuscript editing (particularly interested in YA and adult). I currently contract my editing services to Shawline book publishing but am always open to discussing new projects.

Got a manuscript that needs editing? Let’s chat.

Here on my website I run a blog about books, my main passion. I write book reviews, as well as other related content. Check out the blog to see my latest post!

If you’d like to see more of my writing, links to my other published work can be found on my writing samples page.

When I’m not reading or writing I enjoy relaxing with my husband, two mischievous cats and a cup of tea.
