MJ is a total blessing as an editor. I was fortunate enough to work with her on my recent Mango title Mad Monk Manifesto and found her thorough, more than pleasant, and above all, imaginative in presenting me with a different way to see and organize my material. I look forward to working with her again on more titles in my queue, and can not too highly recommend her.

Dory Dickson (Medford)

“The most remarkable thing by far […] is the rich language, written with a poet’s ear and eye for description and rhythm. [The] astonishing  similes and metaphors, heaped upon each other for paragraphs at a time are dazzling.”
