Here’s what clients are saying about working with me.
Grace brought my book to life, teaching me how to capture readers’ hearts through organically weaving depth and emotion into my scenes. Grace has a gift for knowing what I want to say better than I do, writing several of my favorite lines in my novel. After her editing, I received several requests from editors and agents, won multiple awards, and got an offer of representation from an agent. No one else does what she does!

I lucked out when I got connected to Grace! As a writer who needed both developmental and copyediting, I was quite overwhelmed with my first book. Grace’s ability to take a large, raw, and quite complicated first draft and guide it into the manuscript you always dreamed of is second to none. Specifically, she was very sharp at tightening the plot arcs and character arcs. She pointed out gaps, voice issues, and tone issues. She identified opportunity areas too. The developmental edit was very thorough and impressive. DEENA SHORT, MAGGIE AWARD WINNER
An amazing editor.
Grace has been an amazing editor for my first novel, When Trees Fall. Her calm demeanor made me feel relaxed about the writer-editor relationship. She always encouraged me regarding the parts of my manuscript that were effective yet didn’t fail to help me see the parts that needed improvement, which she did with tact and the obvious desire to help me improve as an author. My novel is ten times better than it was before she edited it. I will most definitely work with her again on future projects. DALE MAHFOOD
Even after being a published author for over 10 years, I still have a lot to learn about marketing my books. Grace has helped me fine-tune my marketing strategies and reach more readers than I had before. Highly recommended! FIONA ZEDDE/LINDSAY EVANS, AUTHOR AND ABOUT.COM READERS’ CHOICE AWARD WINNER
Grace helped me find the story hidden behind my errors. Her work on my recent ebook was outstanding. Along with her proofreading, she also offered valuable insight and feedback which ultimately made for a stronger story. Grace’s guidance and direction in formatting the ebook made the process a breeze and gave me the professional look and feel I was hoping to achieve. She helped this new writer feel like he can run with the veterans. Thank you, Grace! A.S. MACKENZIE, AUTHOR OF ICE WHERE THERE WAS NONE
Grace is a blessing! I have attended many workshops and conferences that always left me wanting. I attended a workshop with Grace as the instructor, and she got to the nuts and bolts of writing and publishing. I finally found someone whose intent is to really teach!
It was an absolute pleasure having Grace copyedit my first novel. She was professional, kind, and easy to communicate with and even went the extra mile by gently suggesting areas where my book could be strengthened. Not only did she make the book that much tighter and sharper with her excellent editing, but she improved it from a story point of view as well. I feel so lucky to have found Grace and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an editor. TRACY ASHWORTH, AUTHOR OF 60 WAYS TO DIE IN SOUTH AMERICA
Grace helped develop, strengthen, and find my voice as a writer. Her professional, yet thoughtful, editing skills have stuck with me while I pursue a writing career. Under Grace’s tutelage, I have won or finaled in several prestigious writing contests, which resulted in agent and editor requests for my full manuscript. I will continue to call upon Grace’s editing skills and strategies in the future.
