I have worked with Holly on countless books, and I’m consistently impressed by her dedication, professionalism, and uncanny ability to delve deep into the heart of a story, pinpoint places that need clarification, suggest revisions, and rework language so a manuscript reads smoother. Any book would greatly benefit from her keen eye.

—John Sibley Williams, editor of The Inflectionist Review and literary agent

Holly has superb attention to detail and a broad knowledge of grammar, literature, and editing standards. She has assisted in copy editing multiple projects for me, ensuring that the final product was professional and correct. Holly is responsible and meticulous, giving equal attention to every project, big or small!
