Fiona was a nonfiction client when she sent me the draft of a novel she’d written. When I read The Mothers’ Group manuscript, I knew this was an important – not to mention page-turning – book. My job was to help Fiona maximise its appeal to prospective publishers through editorial feedback.
The Mothers’ Group went to auction and was a bestseller in Australia and Europe.
Virginia’s mentoring was vital to the ultimate publication of my work. Her insights were helpful at every stage of the process – from big-picture thinking on narrative structure and focus, through to line-by-line editorial feedback at final draft. She is an expert editorial ‘curator’ and a godsend for a first-time author.
