Stephanie is incredible one-on-one. She was completely invested in making my query letter the best we could with no thought of rushing. At the end of the conference I felt as though Stephanie was a mentor and a friend.

Her understanding of what motivates readers, as evidenced in her own work, makes the difference between an abandoned novel and a beloved one.
