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.

C.J. has a knack for picking out what’s working and what’s not working from the very first pages of a manuscript. Her help has been invaluable in building both my skills and my confidence as a writer. After reading the opening of one of my novels, she suggested a structural change that led to a successful rewrite and made the novel strong enough to sign with an agent.
