Jenny’s deft editorial touch is the reason my book, ‘Winnie the Bear’, has been and continues to be a best seller. She is a brilliant editor who worked closely with me to ensure that the story I wanted to tell was the one she meticulously smoothed and perfected. She consulted with the book formatter and her eagle eye did not miss a thing. As an independent publisher I came to rely on Jenny’s knowledge. She is a great editor and consultant for the entire publishing process.
