Hey, Teresa,

You’ve believed in this project from the get go, and you have trusted me and taught me so much. I just want it to be made known that I am very grateful to know you and have such an incredible collaborative relationship with you.

I told a Hollywood friend the other day that working with you has been the most intense, valuable, extraordinary creative experience of my life. Thank you for believing.

To my first editor, Teresa Crumpton, at 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.

“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.”

“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.”

“Teresa Crumpton is an outstanding editor whose
knowledge, training, and suggestions helped me elevate
my writing to a marketable level. I was signed by an
international agent who sold not only my thriller, which
debuted December 2017, but the entire series.”
