Kudos for Lynne:

"I know there’s a proud history of starving writers, but I don't want to be one of them. So before I send any work to a client, I send it to Lynne Cantwell for editorial advice. She’s exceedingly good at all the things I suck at – like never finishing sentences with prepositions."
-- Kimberley Leach, freelance writer at themessagetherapist.com.au

"Thanks, Lynne, for a terrific editing job. I really feel satisfied with Murder on the Half Shell now."
-- Ed Pahnke, author of the Charlie Chief mysteries
