“Stephanie is more than an editor—though she is a kind but discriminating, hardworking, hopeful, helpful and skilful one. Above all she’s an encourager and an empathizer, a cheerleader, coach and commiserator, a teacher and talk-througher. All the things that a writer needs to overcome the fear, resistance, and devastation associated with the fact that their work needs work, that their writing needs rewriting, that their final draft is not finished. She’s more than an editor—she’s a terrific one!”

Anna Quon
Author, Where the Silver River Ends

I was no novice when Stephanie and I teamed up to work on my most recent novel. It was my fourth book, and I knew from my first read-through of her initial notes that I was in the hands of a literary editor of the highest calibre. Stephanie identified and clearly articulated what was working and what was not working in the text, and more importantly, gave me insightful guidance on how to turn up the dial on the former and turn down the dial on the latter.Together we whittled a 113,000 word manuscript down to a fighting weight of 75,000 words. That process was not painless. It was a lot of work. But I could not be more pleased with the result, nor more confident that the work we did made my book the very best it could be.”

Leo McKay, Jr
Author, What Comes Echoing Back

I contacted Stephanie to provide editing services for a manuscript that I was in the process of revising. Not only did she read the manuscript (which by itself is so helpful) she provided a seven-page document outlining issues with plot, character, and dialogue.
It’s difficult for any writer to get down into the weeds of their own work. The recommendations and insights that Stephanie provided were not only helpful, they kept me
motivated to continue writing.
Stephanie is sensitive to the needs of new writers. She’s
professional, thorough and prompt. We had a zoom call at the end of our work together and aside from being dedicated to her craft, she is one of the nicest people you’ll ever work with!”
