“Kira has an amazing ability to rephrase scientific text to suit an audience and to unravel obscure concepts for the reader in clear, concise terms.” (Douglas Tepper, Senior Editor, Science A-Z)

“I’ve worked for major New York book publishers and top-tier university presses, and Kira is one of the best copy editors I’ve encountered. She is an editor’s dream: sharp, analytical, logical, detail-oriented, and a pleasure to work with. I rest easier knowing that she’s on the case whenever she tackles one of my projects.” (John Rousselle, Editor, Reading A-Z)
