  • “Heather Dune is that rare editor who really does make my writing better. She helped me enormously with my last two books. The latest, a love story set in World War Two, is my first venture into fiction and it is fair to say that her editing skills,  ear for dialogue and sense of narrative voice and structure, as well as her patience and sympathetic manner, were a major factor in helping me secure Harper Collins as my publisher. I cannot recommend Heather Dune highly enough.”                                                –Simon Worrall, http://simonworrallauthor.com

 

  • “Heather has been a huge influence in shaping my voice as a writer. She has helped me eliminate flowery language, hone in on human moments and organize my thoughts. She has a gift for giving clear constructive criticism, for thinking up creative exercises and for writing absolutely beautiful prose. Heather knows exactly how to identify problem areas, strengthen a story through details and dialogue, and push writers to their greatest potential. It is not an exaggeration to say I am the successful freelance writer I am today in large part thanks to Heather’s instruction, editing and guidance.”                            –Dayna Troisi, http://www.daynatroisi.com

 

  • “Heather Macadam is a force to be reckoned with.  I was lucky enough to have her guidance both as a savvy, highly skilled editor and as a marketing genius.  She brings a level of experience, creativity and resourcefulness which not only bringing the best out of your precious work, but to the marketplace in an incomparable way.  On top of that, she’s a passionate, empathetic, inspired soul who is truly invested in helping other creatives reach their full potential.”        – Michael Pfaff, https://thestudentwithin.com
