Suzanne Kingsbury is a writer’s dream come true. Introduced to me by a mutual friend, we struck up an instant understanding and camaraderie. She agreed to be my development editor for a book of six memoirs I was tackling alone. Her expertise, guidance, and insightful suggestions for organization were a unique gift. Her unflagging friendship and encouragement are testimony to her talent. I highly value her advice as well as her belief in my writing. I had never written a proposal before, and she led me through the process until it was a truly remarkable work of art that stunned the agent she selected for me. The agent was very excited and anxious to read my manuscript, and I now have a book on its way to publication! I couldn’t be more pleased. ~ Joanna Noble, Guilford, Connecticut, author of Embracing the Wolf: A Lupus Victim and Her Family Learn to Live with Chronic Disease and the upcoming memoir, Class and Brass.
