I have been a published author since 1997 writing for large houses and small ones and have had several editors, all of whom made my books better, but I can honestly state that through all those years and all those books I have never had an editor more efficient, more insightful, and more precise than Linda G. Hatton. My relationship with Linda has been the most comfortable one I have yet had with an editor and I sincerely hope we work together on many more books down the road.

With a perfectly balanced palette of skills, both meticulously and creatively toned, Linda's editing brush found the mismatched shades of color my eyes had missed, and brightened the highlights on each and every page of my manuscript. I can't even begin to speak highly enough of her helpful nature and obvious passion for words. Her concern for keeping my story true to my vision, while helping me to see where my words had stumbled from the path, made for a perfect, painless, and wonderful collaboration.
As a fairly new fiction writer, I find that submitting work for others to read is one of the hardest parts. It is hard to hand over your "baby" and have someone hand it back, holding their nose. So, it was with trepidation that I handed over one of my stories to Linda G. Hatton for editing. I am sorry that I wasted the time worrying about it. Linda was so incredibly good and positive. All of her suggested changes were not only helpful but done in a way that made me feel like we were a team. It was a great experience working with her.
