A SELECTION OF BOOKS I HAVE EDITED

“I have loved working with Laura, and have sent so many friends and colleagues her way. I tell people she is like training wheels when you first learn how to bike — she got me going, and at some point it all just ‘clicked’ and I learned to balance on my own. One of the best things is that in my first major book project (Our Bodies Belong to God), I would call Laura at all stages of the project — when I had a mess of a dissertation draft, an ‘almost-there’ revised chapter, or even just thoughts in my head that were all knotted that I had to talk through. Laura was writing coach, advisor, cheerleader, pep-talker, and brilliant editor all at once! I feel so lucky to have chanced upon her and Our Bodies is much better for it.”

– Sherine Hamdy

"Top-notch developmental editing. Laura helped me realize how much I loved writing books. She has helped me with two projects to date, each of which she picked up at different stages. Both times, she helped me to realize and achieve a truly wonderful vision of what each manuscript could become. I can't imagine working with anyone else on these projects."
