‘I’d like to express my appreciation for the superb quality of work provided by Maria Simms in assessing my manuscript, Mama’s Courage. Her gentle and constructive guidance provided much relief and encouragement in preparation for the next stage of manuscript development. When I finally had an opportunity to read the report and review the mark-ups, my motivation soared. Maria was a ghost tutor in the manuscript assessment process. She has helped hone my writing skills and bring this book to life. Thank you!’
