"I had been writing and publishing for decades before I sent my memoir to Jessica Jarlvi for editing. I expected a few tweaks and suggestions on what I considered a finished manuscript. I had no idea she would transform not only this manuscript but everything I write. Not only was Jessica able to see the big picture, but she showed me how to see it, too. She taught me to dig deeper than I ever have before as well as how to bring new life to every paragraph, skills I am now applying to everything I write. I heartily recommend her to anyone looking for an editor who goes way beyond spelling and punctuation."

Much love, always.
