“Ameesha was an incredible find. Her turnaround time was bested only by the quality of her work. She was insightful and provided a lot of great guidance on changes that needed to be made to the manuscript. Outstanding work. I’ve already started a second project with her — no need to go out to bid. I’ve found the best editor.” – Frederick Williams

Working with her felt like a real partnership. She took a vested interest in my book and provided edits, feedback, and insights that made my draft so much better. I was amazed at how well she balanced both the details and the big-picture elements of my manuscript. Ameesha goes above and beyond the call of duty.” – Stacy Moroz
