As an editor, Lisa is a true professional and has an eye for all the small details. She even noticed when speech marks had been reversed. She gave my manuscript a full edit as well as suggesting where phrases could be improved and clarified. Since finishing my manuscript she has helped me by suggesting publishing routes and providing contact details for these connections. It is her passion for my work that makes her stand out from other editors I have worked with. She shows real enthusiasm for a project and gave me a lot of confidence and encouragement. It is her support that has made me excited to start searching for a publisher. I will definitely be using her again for future projects. I would recommend her for all your editing needs.

Lisa helped me on a few writing projects. I wrote my first draft and didn't worry about errors then would have family look it over. Then I would have Lisa do the FINAL draft and she did it effortlessly and beautifully! She captures what you really mean when sometimes you have a difficult time putting it in words. She also keeps up to date on grammar rules. The papers and my writing projects always turned out polished and professional sounding. I highly recommend her.

Lisa helped polish and improve my book proposal with edits and suggestions that were of a keen eye and a very strong literary sensibility. I would happily work with her again.
