“I couldn’t have had a better editor than Rebecca Weston for my first two novels. Rebecca has the ideal combination of editorial gifts. She is gentle and encouraging, yet she is uncompromising in her high standards. She resolutely pushed me to settle for nothing less than what she was certain I could accomplish, and her belief in me strengthened my belief in myself. Rebecca astutely figured out what wasn’t working in my manuscripts, and I came away from our phone conversations feeling reenergized. It was a tremendous pleasure to work with an editor with such a belief in literature, in the power and lasting importance of words and stories.”
