Charlotte is an excellent editor who has worked on a number of books for logonliteracy. She is efficient and extremely thorough. As well as attending to the technical aspects of writing, Charlotte has provided invaluable advice and guidance about the content of the books. I found this to be of particular help for my most recent book, Hooking Students into Learning … in all curriculum areas, because Charlotte’s suggestions about the way in which the book could be organised have contributed to a much better book. I strongly recommend Charlotte for the high quality of editing that she provides.

I cannot thank you enough for your thorough feedback and advice. Your notes were invaluable to me in shaping the story into its best self. With your insights, I felt like a sculptor removing excess to reveal the statue inside the stone, as the saying goes.
