"Gloria and Jean immerse themselves in your writing. From the big picture down to the tiniest details, they analyze it all. Their individual and collaborative feedback helped me transform several manuscripts, both fiction and nonfiction, and get them ready to submit. Consulting Gloria and Jean is an essential step in my writing routine."

~Kathleen Bahr, children's writer

"As a published author, I can tell you that critical feedback is just as important to me today as it was when I went to my first conference fourteen years ago and experienced the stressful thrill of a critique.  Now, years later, I am blessed to be in a writing group with Jean and Gloria, who deliver the supportive and insightful comments that move my projects forward.

    "If you'd like to know where your writing stands on the path to publication, what better place to start than with a critique from these two fine authors?"


~Charlie Colman, author, The Bald Eagle's View of American History, Amundsen of the Arctics, and Flaked Out: The Story of Cod and Newfoundland.

"They provided me with a detailed, thorough, constructive critique for my middle grade manuscript. It included some overall general considerations and feedback, as well as specific page by page comments. Their professional guidance was invaluable to help me develop the plot and manuscript to a much higher level. It was well worth the investment. Thank you, Gloria and Jean!" 

~Jenny Kinley, middle grade author
