Angela’s unerring instinct for story makes her one of the best editors around. In particular, her skills in character development and its relationship to plot are outstanding. Having had the pleasure of working with Angela on three novels, I can attest to her high level of professionalism and easy manner.
—Emma Viskic

Angela has an extraordinary eye for structure and plot, and a forensic approach to character development. Her feedback is always detailed and insightful, and gives authors concrete guidance on how to plug any story or character holes.
