"I have consulted with Megan on a variety of feature and TV scripts as well as new projects in development. She is deeply insightful, bright and friendly - and didn’t try to shift my work in an entirely new direction. She helps strengthen the writer’s vision and provides thought-provoking questions that encourage richer reflection - so the writer creates more potent emotional, visual and entertaining content."

"I've received multiple critiques from Megan for different picture book manuscripts. She's taken each critique to heart, and I have appreciated many of her clever suggestions. She is thorough, professional, quick, and works to get at the heart of the message and the voice of the characters. She understands kids and the market! I was very happy working with Megan and hope to do so again in the future."
