Jill is a phenomenal editor, very thorough, precise, and thoughtful in her approach. She genuinely cared about my story and how best to tell it in a way that’s most easily digestible and engaging for the reader. Jill also responded quickly to every inquiry and cared about doing the best job possible. I highly recommend her, she went above and beyond my expectations! Independent author, S Yang
