“Sandy has been a delight to work with. Very generous with her time, and she makes you feel right at home at Inspiration for Writers. Her skills at spotting grammatical errors, plot flaws, and typos are phenomenal. She is simply without equal. I consider her a friend and would not go anywhere else for help with my manuscript.”

~ Fred Wolf, Missouri

“After a lot of research in the market, I decided to mail Sandy my novel to proof and critique. What she sent back two weeks later stunned me. Not only had she ferreted out numerous pesky errors that my diligent friends had missed, but she also provided a wealth of insightful commentary. This may be a talent other editors possess, but the positive and sensitive way in which Sandy did this work makes her a stand-out in a very competitive field. I can think of no better name for her business than Inspiration for Writers.”

~ Tim Newman, BC, Canada, author of Yesterday’s Falcon


“I believe that I will be published, and it will happen as a direct result of Sandy’s handholding and gentle admonishments to rewrite that line with a stronger emphasis, or to move that exposition to a more strategic paragraph.”
