“Amy Lyles Wilson is not only a warm, encouraging, and pleasant editor. She is an auto mechanic with words. She’ll give your minivan of a manuscript a once-over, and then turn it into a muscle car. She’ll drop a V8 engine into your paragraphs, tint the chapter windows, and give your sentences all the torque and clip to make your book fly. Be warned: There might soon be a warrant out for her arrest. A ride with her red pen knows no speed limit, and as far as I can tell, she’s only in third gear.”
