"I decided to work with [Britta] after a phone conversation, in which she impressed me with her intelligence and professionalism. My decision was rewarded with nothing less than the best writing class that I have ever taken. First off, her edits and comments made it clear to me that she understood the goals of my novel and respected my writing style, and she found numerous ways and opportunities to enhance the story and my strengths as a writer. Most critically, she gently but clearly pointed out my weaknesses in ways that made me a better story teller and not just a better writer of grammatically correct sentences."
"Britta is an outstanding editor. More than that though, she is a great person—a kind, caring, and supportive partner in the writing process. She has earned my complete trust. Britta is accessible, and is an extremely hard and diligent worker. Most importantly, she is honest in her evaluation of my work. She provides appropriate praise but also points out my deficiencies. All of this, together, makes me a better writer. I couldn't be happier working with Britta Eastburg Friesen. In short, she is the best and earns my highest recommendation."
"I worked with Britta when she was my editor at Harper Collins on my Patriots, Redcoats & Spies book. She is amazing. Every one of her edits, comments and ideas made perfect sense and made me smile because they improved the story so much. Her work was so fantastic I had to hire her as a freelance fiction editor to help tighten another manuscript I wrote before I sent it to publishers and agents for review. Britta will make your story and words sing."
