Client Feedback


“Cat is an amazing editor with a remarkable ability to find weaknesses, explain why a segment is weak, and give concrete advice on how to make corrections. Her knowledge is vast and her intuition is spot-on. Recommending her is a no-brainer.”

-Linda Yezak, Editorial Assistant at Hartline Agency, fiction author, and Carol Award finalist


“You are a gift, Cat…Thank you for the excellent job…At one point, coffee spewed due to your comments. I may need to pay you a little more for the good belly-laugh.”

-Diane Graham, author of I Am Ocilla (Splashdown Books, 2012)


“All I can think of to say is – WOW. I had no idea that your editing would be so extensive (or so brilliant).  I’ve only skimmed through it and I’m so grateful…”

-Stephanie Landsem, 2011 ACFW Genesis Contest finalist, author of The Well and The Thief (Howard-Simon & Schuster)


“Top-class editing, thorough and clear, with just the right ideas to spark off great developments. Consistently encouraging, responsive, interactive, and caring.”

-Grace Bridges, Owner, Splashdown Books


“She’s professional, reliable, savvy, and funny. When I first started hunting for a professional editor, I knew I wanted someone who would be easy to work with and who could further my own education as a writer. Cat fits that bill to a T.”

-K.M. Weiland, author of Dreamlander, Writer’s Digest University coursewriter, and owner of the award-winning WordPlay writing blog

“I couldn’t give a higher recommendation for Cathi-Lyn’s work. This is a top-shelf service.”

– Marc Schooley, author of Christy-nominated/Carol Award-winning Konig’s Fire (Marcher Lord Press, 2010)


“…Best of all, she ‘got’ my story. She understood what I wanted to achieve and then helped me to get there. And she spotted things that I would never have seen in a million years…if you are looking for an editor, I can’t recommend Cat enough. She is professional, thorough, patient, and supportive in equal measure.”

-P.A. Baines, author of Alpha Redemption (Splashdown Books, 2010), double silver medalist in the 2011 Indie Book Awards
