Claudia is a skilled, sensitive and insightful reader of fiction manuscripts. I have often suggested her to writers who need someone to cast an expert eye over their work and they've been very satisfied with her assessment and constructive advice. She was an early reader of Girl, Woman, Other and her feedback was invaluable. Highly recommended!

Claudia has read all my novels while I was in the process of writing them and has always been a huge help to me. She has a very intelligent understanding of the mechanics of how novels work and her insights have helped me bring a disjointed draft to a coherent and publishable manuscript.

Claudia offered a thorough and refreshing take on my novel Ordinary People when it needed an objective eye. She is an astute and perceptive reader and I would highly recommend her for ‘book doctor’ services and general editorial prowess.

Claudia is a joy to work with - concise, professional and astute. I highly recommend her editorial services at any point in a writer's manuscript journey, from first idea right through to what the writer thinks is a polished first draft. Her comments and suggestions made my book better than I could have hoped. Having published and found literary representation, I'll still be asking for Claudia's professional input into future work.

I really value Claudia’s critiques. She has a way of getting to the heart of what’s wrong. She provides straightforward criticism, clearly explaining her thinking, and is exceptionally supportive and encouraging.
