They need to make corrections and improve copy without losing the author’s intent. This Kathryn did with great skill. Over the years I have employed a number of editors. (I have published 23 books.) I don’t think I am exaggerating when I say that Kathryn was the best of all these people. She will deliver for any organization smart enough to hire this talented editor.”
