Dori Ostermiller was the first person to read my full manuscript, and she gave me invaluable guidance and edits to steer me in the right direction. Forever grateful!
–Megan Tady, author of Super Bloom
Dori gave a thorough reading of my manuscript, commenting with smart, considered responses throughout. Needless to add, I soaked up the many positive things she said about my writing. But, more importantly, she pointed out difficulties I had not seen and offered valuable insights and incisive suggestions. Her participation has vastly improved my book! I am grateful for her kind, intelligent and insightful attention.
