"Every writer should be so fortunate to have Lara as an editor. She has a keen eye not just for grammatical and syntactical problems, but also for structural coherence. Lara is well versed in literary craft and is highly skilled in guiding the writer in the revision process. In my work with her, I feel her suggestions have greatly improved my final product. I value her judgment and have no hesitation about continuing to work with her in future endeavors." David Evans

"Lara was thorough, insightful, and helpful! The best thing about Lara's editing style is that she doesn't re-write—she suggests changes and poses questions that encourage the writer to look at their characters and plot in new ways—ways that help them develop a better manuscript. I would recommend Lara to anyone who wants to add depth, emotion, and clarity to their writing." S.M. Roffey
