“Frankly, I don’t know what I would do without the Amazing Amy Cherrix. Her sharp editorial eye, quick-on-her-feet problem solving, humor and compassion make for a dream editor. I have sought out her editorial consultations on book projects of all genres, from picture books and poetry to nonfiction and novels. She is a tireless and detailed line editor with an innate sense of understanding for the rhythms of language, as well as a pragmatic ‘Big Picture’ advisor when it comes to envisioning the final draft and its place in the marketplace. Thank you Amy, for keeping me OUT of the slush pile!”
