"I've been working with Sarah for over five years. I can count on her to deliver smart, incisive, compelling writing across a wide range of subjects - and always on time. Like all editors, I've been disappointed by flaky writers. Sarah is one of those few you never have to worry about. Her work comes in so clean it barely needs editing. She makes my job easy!"
