    Maya is simply astounding. To begin with, she's the best editor I've ever worked with, knowing when to enforce the rule--always with the exact citation in the Chicago Manual--and when to let the authorial voice shine through. She also understands the mechanics of story extremely well while maintaining an eye for all the little details such as continuity and timeline. Though the scope of the project changed early on, Maya was more than adaptable, suggesting several solutions for how to manage the project despite her busy schedule. Bottom line: Maya is both a professional and artist when it comes to editing. I'll be returning to her again and again with every future project.

    Maya just made my book a whole lot better. I would never do it again without her. In fact, I feel a little naked leaving this feedback now without asking her to review it :) If honesty, insight, a delicate touch and a letter perfect but eminently flexible command of language and structure are what you are looking for, then go no farther. Maya is truly a Queen of her art.
