Kudos for Pat

D. L. Young, author
  Pat has a real eye for detail and has helped me shape my writing into something clear and polished on more than one occasion.”  
Pat is a very capable editor. If you’ve written a manuscript which requires either a line-by-line edit, or merely a frank assessment of plot and/or characterization, then I can heartily recommend Pat Hauldren. You will be a better author for the experience.”
 "Pat's involvement with my writing has been invaluable. Her patience, knowledge, and skill helped me craft better, more effective communication. She's simply a top-notch professional and wonderful to work with."
