Jan is thoroughly committed to helping you be the best writer you can be. She coaxes beautiful words, phrases, and ideas from your story the way a gardener coaxes her plants to produce new blooms. I’ve used her services several times and she has always given me a better understanding of my work and how I can elevate it to achieve the goals I’ve set, whether I’m entering the piece in a contest or just trying to capture a style.
