I highly recommend Crystal Nevin as a professional editor. She was a pleasure to work with because of her clear, responsive communications and commitment to deadlines. I was very impressed by her skillful ability to pinpoint specific areas in my manuscript that needed changing, and then would come up with alternative writing suggestions that mimicked my style. Her comments and critiques push my writing skills to a higher level. She has become my go-to editor for all my future writing projects. I feel lucky to have found her.
