Catherine did a bang-up job copy editing the manuscript. She caught many slip-ups and shared a number of clever, creative suggestions as well.

Catherine copy edited my novel Worry, and I was absolutely ecstatic with the wonderful job she did. She made so many fantastic catches (saving me from myself many times over). Her work was incredibly thorough, considerate, and spot-on. Her thoughtful suggestions helped me immeasurably, galvanizing and inspiring me to make important adjustments to the story and fill some gaps. My novel is so much richer thanks to Catherine’s hand in it, and any writer would be lucky to have her as their copy editor. She’s a gem.
