About Me

Hello, I’m Heather. I'm the face behind Bowland Editorial. I am a freelance copyeditor and proofreader. I'm a BIG lover of the outdoors; my life motto is 'Think outside, no box required'. I am a keen fell walker and runner and the mountains are my medicine! I served in the RAF for 13 years and have worked in the public sector since I left the RAF in 2018. It’s always been a dream of mine to work for myself and what better way than to combine this dream with my love and passion for reading, writing and languages. I have a MSc in Counter Terrorism and I’m a linguist by trade. I live in Lancaster (near the Forest of Bowland - hence the name!) with my husband, our daughter, our golden retriever and our cocker spaniel pup. I am passionate about helping others reach their writing goals. If your writing goal is a book, a blog, a flyer or an article for a magazine -- I'm here to help! I take inspiration from the great outdoors and love working with like-minded folk. I predominantly work with non-fiction text and my areas of expertise include:

  • Outdoor adventure

  • Nature/animals

  • Travel

  • Sport

  • Health and fitness

  • Self-help

  • Defence

  • Aviation

  • Technology

  • Security

I offer a free sample edit/proofread of up to 1000 words.


Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to get a quote or for more information.

I'd certainly recommend Bowland Editorial. The service was professional and swift, the edited piece was a far superior product. Thank you.

Highly recommend Bowland Editorial. I received feedback with clear and helpful notes throughout my assignment. This is a great service and I would use again for further assignments.
