"Maria has done a wonderful job appraising my manuscript.

She  looked at it in detail and gave me clues how to improve what I've written. 

When I've have put her suggestions into my writing I can immediately see the improvement in pace and interest.  

Best investment I could have made.  Thank you Maria."  Jean, Leeds
