What people are saying about my edits

Lea Kirk Romance writer

I recommend Sue all the time

Sue has been my developmental editor since I started publishing my books in 2016, and I’m so grateful for her guidance. I love working with her and I recommend her to other authors all the time. Several of my friends now happily use her for their books!

A tuned-in, savvy, humbling creative

I’ve never worked with a more tuned-in, savvy, or humbling creative. Sue can see through to the very heart of a story, then weaves pure magic to draw the very best from your words. She has an effortless control over the art of storytelling that allows her to mold plot structure, character motivation, and story arcs into things of utter beauty. I cannot thank her enough for the lessons learned and the writerly growth she’s provided. If you ever have a chance to work with this talented and beautiful soul, do yourself a favor and jump on it. You won’t regret it.


Sue is my developmental editor. DE is basically the same kind of editor as my acquiring editor at a traditional publishing house. I chose Sue because her specialty is romance and my novellas tend to lean that direction. I wanted someone who would have that focus. She’s extremely helpful and I find if she and my beta’s agree on anything, then it must be altered in the story.
