"Kristi is a phenomenal editor who is as incisive as she is supportive. I’ve worked with her on projects in three different genres, and each time she’s proven to be an invaluable resource. Bottom line: If you want to produce a better book for your readers, contact Kristi and prepare to be dazzled."
— Kresley Cole, #1 New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author
"Kristi is one of the most gifted developmental editors I've ever had the privilege to work with. With a keen eye for pacing, a knack for characterization, and the ability to get to the heart of every story, Kristi mines the emotional gold on every page. I've trusted her with more than fifteen books, and her skilled editing and great insights have helped me create stories that bring readers back over and over again. (I can back up that claim with our four RITA nominations together!) I won't write a book without her!"
— Roxanne St. Claire, New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author

"Kristi has an amazing eye for story content. She’s incredibly thorough and takes time to truly get to know my books. Her editorial suggestions offer marked improvement in story, pacing, and character. It's obvious she cares about making my books better, which is what every author looks for in an editor."

"I started working with Kristi on the third book in my Pine Harbour series. I was blown away by the depth of her careful notes—and grateful that she balanced her sharp critique with joyous celebration for the characters she was obviously invested in and wanted the best story for. That's a lovely thing to find in an editor, and it's always an honour to dig deep on her revision suggestions and try to do them justice. I always look forward to working with her."

"Kristi has a keen eye for detail and an incredible talent for helping an author take their manuscript to the next level. She is a treasure!"

"Kristi is like a brilliant doctor. She diagnoses a manuscript’s ailments with laser accuracy, then helps develop the cure. The result is a book with a more focused plot, sharper character development, smarter internal dialogue, deeper conflict, stronger voice, and better pacing."
— Stacy Finz, New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author
"Kristi is by far the most professional and organized editor with whom I've worked. Her developmental edit on my latest book allowed me to put it out weeks ahead of schedule. She zeros in on plot issues, sees what's missing, and clearly lays out how to fix the story. This allows the revision process to go from several rudderless weeks of hell to a quick and easy checklist that flows so much more smoothly. Having worked on several books with the senior editorial staff at HarperCollins, I can safely say that Kristi is every bit as thorough and has just as much command over what a story requires in order to become a page-turner. And as if that weren't enough, she's really friggin' nice and funny, too. I consider myself lucky to be one of her clients."
— Melanie Summers / MJ Summers, #1 Amazon Bestselling Author
"Kristi is an integral part of my writing process. From story planning to content assessments and edits, she focuses my ideas and words so that I can deliver the best book possible to my publishers and readers."
