I was so impressed by Katherine’s feedback on my query that I hired them for a full manuscript critique. Best decision. Katherine’s detailed analysis and worldbuilding, plot and characterization suggestions helped me transform my middle grade story. I feel lucky to have worked with such a great editor! - Jean Ramsden, MG author
If you're thinking about booking Katherine Locke for editorial services, do it! She was a dream to work with and her very smart notes were spot on.
