Jolie Tunnell, author of the Loveda Brown Mystery Series

"Mary Knight edited the fourth book in my historical mystery series, Loveda Brown: Summer Storm, with attention to both detailed edits and holistic plot cohesiveness. Her copy editing work was exemplary. She was communicative, professional, and motivating. Mary's Style Sheet was comprehensive, including spelling, grammar, and the Chicago Manual of Style rules for my particular writing. Her notes on revisions made allowances for my “author's voice" while helping me improve it. A true collaboration. Her care for my project is reflected in the nearly 100% 5 star reviews it brings in."
