"Stephanie was my editor on the first six Anisha books. She guided me through the early years of my career with wisdom, humour and so much patience! The Anisha series would not have had the success it has had without Stephanie’s keen insight and input. I feel very lucky to have worked with her."
"It has been a complete joy to work with Stephanie at Usborne for so many years. At editorial meetings I was always keen to hear Stephanie’s perceptive and eloquent thoughts. She is a fantastic champion of her authors and dedicates herself to every project she works on, with meticulous care and attention. A brilliant editor to work with and much loved by all her authors."
"Stephanie has worked with me on the Megaphone Writer Development Scheme since 2020. Her input has been absolutely invaluable: she has been consistently reliable, generous with her time, and creative in her thinking about how to develop the scheme. The writers in Megaphone Community have benefited enormously from her expert feedback on their work and her insight into the children's publishing industry. I am confident that any writer or publisher would be very lucky to work with her."
"Stephanie has edited four of my middle-grade novels with care and sensitivity. She knows the market and the audience inside-out and so can put her finger really quickly on what works, or what doesn't. Her insights have helped me fix the bits in my manuscripts that don't work, and make the bits that do, shine even brighter. She's a passionate advocate for books that she loves, and any writer would be lucky to have her in their corner!"
"Authors love Stephanie. Her kindness, wisdom and careful consideration are all so hugely valuable, and I have been
delighted to see new voices flourish under her care."
"Stephanie's feedback was thoughtful, multilayered, considered and to the point. I appreciated how her feedback took into account where I was in relationship to the manuscript, suggesting different options for the next stage. She considers the author as well as the work. Her insightful suggestions helped me tremendously. I would not hesitate to recommend her services."
“Stephanie has it all. As well as bringing her extensive editing smarts to my stories, she gave me confidence and helped me to find my identity as a writer. Stephanie has a thorough grasp of the children’s and YA markets, along with a profound appreciation of what makes every author unique. I was incredibly lucky to have worked with her.”"
"Far and away one of the most talented, perspicacious and professional people I've worked with, not to mention very kind."
“Stephanie’s empathetic, passionate and compassionate nature had helped to improve my writing. As a woman and a writer of colour I was always afraid of sharing my work but since Joining Megaphone and being supported by Stephanie, I’ve come out of my shell. She has helped me find my writing voice and have confidence in my work.”
“Great editing requires an impressive skillset and Stephanie excels in all areas. If you get the opportunity to work with her, seize it with both hands."
