‘Having done a couple of workshops with Laurel, I had experienced first-hand her knowledge of anything story and was willing to wait for an available date for an assessment. My ms had gone through beta readers and received positive feedback, but Laurel turned my writerly world upside down by challenging me to rethink tense, POV, my heroine’s arc and other minor details. Three weeks of intense rewriting, following all her guidelines, and recommendations, and here I am with a much better novel. Laurel notices everything from the overall structure to an out of place em-dash. I will trust her with all my future ‘babies’.’
