"A wise and encouraging teacher as well as a talented writer, Paul has helped me understand precisely what I am trying to achieve, and the story I want my audience to experience. I am extremely grateful to Paul and recommend him as a mentor to all aspiring writers and even to already proven authors who are seeking input and evaluation of their work."

"Paul's structural suggestions highlight where there is a need for action to increase the pace, where the emotion behind or in response to situations is missing or not clear, challenges when language or behaviour doesn’t fit the character, and when chapters aren’t servicing the story.

Don’t consult Paul if you aren’t committed to a long of rewriting after his critique, but if you are, your story will definitely be more powerful, believable and engaging. My four completed manuscripts have been enhanced by working through each one with Paul."

"Paul's writing acumen has benefitted me over the span of many years; his attention to detail has been invaluable when fine-tuning a manuscript on its way through the development process. I have come to rely on his natural talent and keen eye. Add to that his insight and ability to dissect and rearrange a plot or scene for improved effect, and you have an editor whose skills set will benefit clients at any stage of their path to publication. Nobody does it better."
