Who is Susan Turner aka SuzySharpEyes?

My passion for the written word came from my British parents. Both were avid readers and encouraged my brothers and me to have a book or magazine with us at all times. Growing up, I loved a good mystery book and could often be found at the local library perusing the latest releases.

 I have always been detail-oriented. My father coined the term Suzy Sharp Eyes when I would consistently catch print or text errors.  While I have had many different interests and professions during 40 plus years in the corporate world, the one constant has always been my grammar and spelling proficiency.  

In March 2020, I joined the Editor's Association of Canada.  It was quite inspiring to be surrounded by other people with the same passion for the written word. I was also thrilled to find out that there were so many editorial niches. I decided to opt for early retirement and pursue a new career path. 

I completed the Professional Editing Standards Certificate through Queen's University in 2021 and have launched my freelance proofreading business, SuzySharpEyes.

I look forward to working with you!

I was really excited to work with this Editor. She seemed organized and detailed and I knew going in that she would find an approved draft with lots of editing needing to be done. The writing quality was sloppy despite being a premium writer and I only approved the draft because the content was there. I appreciate the amount of time and extra work that went into it that honestly if the writer had done a better job, I don't think the mistakes that were made with this order, would have happened. It was a bumpy ride but the end result I am happy with. Because the end result turned out to be very good, I will use this editor again
