Testimonials & Featured Clients

To my first editor, Teresa Crumpton, at AuthorSpark.org. Thank you for offering just the right mixture of compassion and common sense and for giving me the courage to allow someone else to read my words.

Amy Sevan  Pledge of Ashes. NYLA Publishing, 2018

“Teresa has the global eye for the big picture—what  works and what doesn’t work. She also has the eagle eye for detail so necessary in the final polishing stage before submission. Without fail, her valuable comments and suggestions are offered with skill,  encouragement,  honesty, and compassion.”

Edie Hemingway

Parents' Choice Gold Award--Road to Tater Hill, Delacourt Press, 2009

“Teresa Crumpton pinpoints and corrects the usual  grammatical suspects, but she also makes suggestions that strengthen the plot, pace, character motivations, and more.

She hunts down errors and weaknesses in the manuscript and builds confidence by highlighting the  author’s strengths as well. Working with Teresa is a pleasure. She edits, polishes, motivates, and inspires. I value her detailed feedback, expertise, and experience.”

Kat Shehata
