“It is refreshing to work with a professional like Anika who can give honest, constructive critique without sugar coating it.  All feedback from her, good or bad, has a purpose and she backs it up with detailed explanations. That is why she is my primary editor and writing coach for all my writing projects.”
– Troy Kechely, author of Stranger’s Dance and Lost Horse Park
