I’ve been so fortunate to work with C.J. on multiple projects now, and I’m always amazed by her insight and thoughtfulness. Not only is she a wonderful writer, but she’s a wonderful critique partner who always sees to the heart of the story and aims straight for it.

CJ’s critical eye is as sharp as her wit. Not only did she call out numerous mistakes I’d been making in my draft, but she did it with enough heart and humor that it never felt painful. She was the first person to critique my writing, and the pages definitely showed my inexperience. But she found a way to push me to do better while also helping me believe in myself–and the project–and made me want to keep going.
