I was amazed that Lucy knew my characters, plot and themes as well (or better!) than me. Her suggestions on how to hone and develop all three were excellent and insightful, and her patience and willingness to enter into prolonged discussions about the most minor issues was outstanding. She is a true professional and she always goes that extra mile – clearly, she cares deeply about her work. I can’t wait to send her my next manuscript.
