Always respecting my voice and vision.

From that first book we worked on together to the most recent one, Angela James has made me a better writer. She is clear and focused, always respecting my voice and my vision as she edits. Thanks to her touch, my books are more romantic, more emotional, more complex and more interesting. Even when I’m revising on my own or writing that difficult first draft, I can hear her voice and feel her guidance. An author can’t go wrong hiring someone with this much experience and love of reading.”
