As authors, our stories become our children, and we are protective of them. What I loved about Alicia is that she got to know my characters as well as I do, and became invested in them, too. Every suggestion or question had sound reasoning behind it. Every change, whether small or large, grammar- or story-based, made my story better. She was more than willing to discuss points and always had the good of my story in mind. I am positive that Alicia’s editing was a contributing factor to Secret of the Manor becoming a best seller. Alicia was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I’d gladly trust her with any of my stories in the future. —Taylin Clavelli
