I have the joy of working with wonderful clients. On this page, you’ll find some of the things people have had to say after using my services.

I have to say my experience working with Steph on my book Foresight was amazing. I’m not just saying that, she was professional, easy to deal with and challenged me on things that made me a better writer but also gave me a better end result. Loved the experience.
I have no reservations in recommending Steph and her editing services.

Craig Ford, Author of Foresight

Working with Steph was an absolute pleasure. She understood the importance I attached to expressing myself in my memoirs; engaged in the substance of the material before making suggestions to improve its clarity (almost all of which I endorsed); was prompt and responsive, and thoroughly professional in her approach. I would strongly recommend using her services.

This editing process with Steph has been a great experience. She’s given me all the tools necessary as I attempt my second draft. She made the process so much easier. Looking forward to working with her again.

Steph has been writing book reviews for me at Independent Book Review for more than 18 months, and she’s been an absolute treat to deal with. Not only does she always get her reviews in on time (all 20+ of them!), but she’s clearly an informed reader across a variety of genres. And she’s an articulate writer, too. She’s displayed a true knack for getting to the meat of the story early on and sharing her praise and/or criticisms of each book in a kindhearted and honest tones. If you’re thinking of booking her for a review, I’ve got your answer right here for you—do it.

I reached out to Steph Huddleston Writing while searching for beta readers for my partial manuscript of a science fiction novel. Steph’s critique of my manuscript exceeded my expectations in every way. She provided in-depth feedback on characterisation, plot, and readability. It is clear that she is a reader who is familiar with the genre, which is very important when hiring a sci-fi beta reader. As a new writer, the early feedback is invaluable, and I highly recommend Steph Huddleston Writing.


I loved the feedback for my book. It was thoughtful and easy to follow. It helped me understand my strengths as well as areas that could be improved. I’ll be coming back when my next book is complete! Thanks again 🙂


[Steph] provided a thorough assessment with valuable pointers on where to go in adjusting elements in the next draft, particularly world-building, presentation of plot points, and what to fix about certain key characters.


[Steph’s] report was SO helpful. I found the categorical breakdown of what you looked for and your descriptions of my manuscript in each of those categories an intuitive and clear way to receive feedback. This format will also help me approach my revisions in a systematic way that doesn’t feel overwhelming. [Steph’s] feedback also contained a nice balance of praise and articulate critique, as well as specific examples to help me see the story through your eyes. I’m really excited to delve into my revisions with [Steph’s] feedback in hand. Thanks again!

Monika, Author

Working with Steph was a seamless, empowering and very encouraging experience. She communicated brilliantly throughout her work of reviewing my book, making clear her process and time frames. As an indie author I felt respected and affirmed, and this was all before I received her final review! Steph has a beautiful manner about her that invites collaboration, with the mutual aim of releasing good and new literature into the world. I definitely recommend her book review service.

I am so glad I found Steph’s [beta reading service]. She helped me to identify the strengths of my work as well as its weaknesses with great suggestions for how to make improvements. I had been losing faith in the project but Steph’s feedback has encouraged me to keep working to make it the best that it can be. Thank you so much!


Steph’s specific and insightful feedback is always framed by an attitude of support. She wants you to succeed and your work to be better and is eager to share her knowledge and skills with you.
