"Writing is such a solitary venture but good editing should feel collaborative. I've worked with well-known, high-profile editors from big-five publishing houses who simply mark up my manuscript, send a short uplifting editorial letter, and accept their payment with little if any follow up. When Lynne wanted to get my changes back to review it a final time I was floored. This is the way the editing process should feel with supportive guidance focused on the content. Lynne was by far the most thorough line editor I've worked with, too. She not only caught mistakes that I and another editor missed, but she also pointed to some content that came off confusing and worked with me to suggest fixes. Hands down, your experience with her will be the best investment you can make for your book."
author of Seattle Pioneers Football and Howler Sports Agency romance series
"I was referred to Lynne by an editor friend of mine who had heard good things about her. My friend was right. I've worked with Lynne on multiple books: historical novellas, sports romances, and contemporary romances. She has a great eye for detail. I'd recommend Lynne to anyone who is looking for a talented editor."

"This comes from my heart. You have been so patient and thoughtful to work with. I’ve learned so much from you. I’ve learned what I need to do and focus on to make my writing better. I feel like I have met someone who I can turn to for guidance and answers, but I’ve also met a friend. Thank you for not only showing me what I need to change in my stories, but teaching me why and how to make my stories better."
author of Three Days to Love and Three Days to Choose.
"My second novel was due to the publishing house when I was in the middle of selling my home and moving. I had a deadline looming, but was so distracted, I didn't even know if the novel held together or not. Thank God Lynne did a fast edit for me. She pointed out pacing issues, areas where the exterior plot needed to be strengthened (or more often, cut back) and places where my heroine needed to be fleshed out more. I'm proud of the finished novel and grateful for her keen editing eye."
author of Three: From the Beginning to the End
"Lynne was my editor, and I loved saying that, for my first nonfiction book Three. I appreciated her thorough process from the very beginning. She was quick to respond, accurate, and made wonderful suggestions. I could contact Lynne about anything and she would review everything I sent her way. Because of her process, I was able to locate problems with names and people in Three that needed a change. This is not a small task with a 346-page book. Lynne made everything easy for me and even handled formatting issues with my designer Mike Inks. The entire editing process was perfect and Lynne was terrific. Thank you Lynne."
author of From Mountains to Morales; Stories of Bolivia
"Positive yet critical feedback. Thorough and accurate. Creative yet pragmatic. That’s what I want in an editor. Lynne delivers. She edited my last book – pointing out errors and misspellings that I’ve made for years – and provided sound counsel to help me maneuver some of the tricky spots. (Oh, and she came up with the title.) I’m looking forward to our next engagement."
