Committed to excellence and devoted to fine writing, Valerie is a rare find as an editor.  New and experienced writers alike benefit from her skillful and tactful approach. I count myself privileged to have worked with her.”

I am a better writer for knowing and working with Valerie. Valerie’s biggest strength, as an editor, is that she can spot potential. And creatively, gently, she can pull from the writer their very best work. She makes you even better than you ever knew you could be. I will forever be indebted to her.”
