Rebecca is a pleasure to work with. She has handled the editorial and project management work for Collins on a number of educational titles. She is a great all-round editor and is reliable, communicative and enthusiastic. Rebecca has excellent interpersonal skills and I'm looking forward to working with her again.

Charlotte Christensen, senior editor, HarperCollins

Rebecca Rothwell has proofread several titles for us and her work has been thorough, professional and on schedule. The authors have been very pleased with her input and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Heather Morris, managing editor, The Self Publishing Partnership

I have engaged Rebecca on frequent occasions to support the proofreading and analysis of my key business publications. I have been delighted with the advice and guidance provided. In my business deadlines are often tight and Rebecca always meets the deadlines that I require. I would and indeed have recommended Rothwell Editorial to other businesses.
