“When my manuscript was returned, it was clear Rhonda had pored over every page with a diligent eye and ear. I am now progressing on to the next phase–character development, overarching themes, and the well-needed reminder of basic formatting rules. The assistance provided by Rhonda was instrumental in taking me from the outpouring phase of writing to a structured, goal-oriented mode. I’m thrilled.”

~ Lisa Dekis, author of Dreams of Igor

“Rhonda took the vision I had for my manuscript and edited it so that everything I hoped to create was right before my eyes. I was so excited to see my dreams of Faith Town be born, and it happened because of Rhonda. I wouldn’t have any problems highly recommending her.”

~ Cindy Tuttle, author of Joyful Surrender
