Liz (AKA Script Doctor), is insightful, efficient, fair, and genuinely interested in doing her best for her clients. She has helped me far beyond what I expected… Liz covered a great many aspects of the art of writing and helped me to "think" about what I am doing. Thank you, Liz! Phil Green, Enfield.

I first approached Liz for a manuscript assessment. Her feedback was thorough and highly constructive - it gave me the building blocks to refine my ideas and frame them in a way that brought them to the forefront. Currently, I’m working with Liz as a writing coach. Her process and approach to directing editorial changes and helping me develop my own voice and style has been invaluable. I couldn’t do without Liz and am so thankful for all her help and guidance. Couldn’t recommend enough! Joseph De La Hoyde, New South Wales.

"Whilst struggling with my first novel, I reached out to Jericho Writers in Oxford. They matched me with Liz to assess my MS. Her constructive editing and positive comments gave me the inspiration to continue. Not only did she point out where things needed work, more importantly (to me) she showed me what I was doing well. Thank you, Liz for being so honest and insightful."  Jo Harris - Oxford, UK.

I sent Liz a copy of my debut book because I wanted to know, first and foremost, whether I could actually write something to hold a reader’s interest. She suggested some useful edits and tweaks to the plot but also pointed out what I had done well, which was a confidence boost. She made perceptive comments about the storyline and seemed genuinely interested in what I had written. Best of all, Liz has inspired me to write my next book, which I’m now doing. Anne Vitoria, UK
