Samantha is awesome! My first draft was all over the place and she give me the focus to plot a steadier course though the story. She has a way of delivering bad news caused by my bad habits in an encouraging way. She is thoughtful, she is precise, and she knows what the hell she's doing. I trust her completely, and would be happy to work with her again.
