“Choosing an editor is tough. It’s supposed to be. You want people on your team who are as passionate about your work as you are. Elizabeth edited my third Mr. Finn novel, The Prison Guard’s Son, and she delivered. She surprised me several times with her comments and level of detail. In short, she knows her stuff, and she made me look like a better writer. If you’re looking for someone to substantiate how wonderful your writing is, move along because that’s not what Elizabeth does. Instead, she’ll provide the critical eye that you need. She’ll ask the right questions and poke holes in your work. And then she’ll help you fix it. And that’s what a damn good editor should do.” — Trace Conger
It was a tremendous pleasure to work with Neliza Drew on her debut novel All the Bridges Burning, which has garnered praise from readers, reviewers, and Drew’s fellow authors.

“It is exceedingly rare to find someone who has both the editorial knowledge and storytelling sense coupled with the necessary humility to focus on making your book what you want it to be. I was extremely impressed with Elizabeth’s ability to deduce what I was ‘going for’ in my book and then tailor all aspects of her editing and suggestions to target this goal. In hiring Elizabeth you’re hiring a true team member, one who has the skill and instincts to help you achieve your goal.” — James R. Duncan
“I’ve worked with Elizabeth on both self-published and traditionally published books. Each time I found her to be extremely professional, timely and she provided a great knowledge of the genre of crime fiction, as well as fixed my grammatical travesties. I could go with any number of people to correct my spelling, but Elizabeth gave my writing a bit more that I feel really helped push it to its final stage.” — Mike McCrary
