Kate brings a wealth of knowledge on diverse subjects and understanding of multiple languages to her editing, which is very beneficial. She pays very good attention to detail, sentence structure and use of jargon/ word consistency. She identified weaker sections due to mixed metaphors and incorrect allusions. She also perceived theme and continuity, suggesting areas where connections could be made more explicit. I am very happy with Kate's editing. My manuscript is stronger after working with Kate. I would definitely work with her again, as well as recommend her to other writers! ~Corinne Desjardins (author of Persephone and Me)
