TL;DR This is the editor you want and need. We worked together on a novel trilogy and a trilogy of short stories. Her edits were impeccable and her suggestions to the point and just suggestions. Never during our working together did I feel like she tried to overpower my voice. On the contrary, she was very objective and gave great advice. The deliveries were always on time and I am definitely going to work with her again in the future.
