Rachel treated this complex novel with care and expertise. She guided this novel, which I had been working on in the dark, to bring it to a polished finish. Rachel’s keen eye was able to spot the tiniest error and her research skills are brilliant. I felt truly supported and that she cared. Rachel was the midwife Rise needed!”

Rachel came highly recommended from one of my athletes' parents who has self-published and worked with Rachel. This was my first experience working with an editor, and I am very pleased with the experience. Rachel was patient and took the time to answer all my questions. She took my book/manual – mental performance training – to the next level, was thorough with the edits and comments, and did so in a timely manner. The overall experience was fantastic. I will be recommending her services to anyone who asks about editing.
