Christina won't just work for you, she will work with you! Throughout the whole editing process my own tone, style and the integrity of the story was never compromised. Few editors have been so respectful over my work. With such an amazing eye for detail, expert grammar and an excellent sense of structure, you will receive back the very best of what your work can be.
