The cover of Forbidden Child by Sylvie Chartrand

“What a great experience the editing was! I learned, I laughed, I felt good about my manuscript. I even started writing another book. Arlene was so inspiring. If you’ve never worked with her, you don’t know what you’re missing. If you have, you know what I mean. Arlene shares her immense knowledge readily and is always there when you need her. She suggests, challenges, explains, debates. It made me feel as if my manuscript was the only thing on her mind. Priceless. Never in a bad mood, always encouraging, she’s a real professional. Arlene loves words and writers. I learned an enormous amount about POV that I’ll apply to my next book. Thanks again, Arlene. I hope with all my heart to that we’ll get to work together again in the near future.”
