And the actors' cues for meaning, emotion, and emphasis are still embedded in Shakespeare's language, rip... read more

Working with Kim was a pleasure. I felt well taken care of due to her thoughtful questions and timely replies. The developmental editing and formatting she did for my book: Book Restoration Unveiled, helped to clarify areas that needed work and made it flow better. I am now working with a publisher and it is being released spring 2019.

Kim is a professional who knows her craft. Her insights and expertise was invaluable and evidenced in creating a publication that was properly referenced and engaging to my audience. She was both supportive and challenging (in the most lovely way), two characteristics that are vital qualities in an editor. I highly recommend her.
