Being a self-professed reluctant writer, sometimes I need kind words and firm guidance. That special someone who knows how to inspire, but has the precision to take that piece of coal and turn it into a diamond. Lindsay is such a person. She has a firm grasp of what a story needs, regardless of length. Her eye for story detail is impeccable and she makes those hard calls that others might not want to mention. Yet, she does so with a grace and kindness that is rare in this world, let alone this field. Lindsay has a keen awareness of what the reader wants, but never lets go of the author’s intent, resulting in a piece that satisfies both. I always look forward to working with her, and know what successes I have experienced in writing rest on her shoulders.
