The Dark Shadows of Kaysersberg is one of the most compelling and enjoyable books I have worked on.

‘Absolutely delighted to have been able to work with Karen on my latest book of historical fiction. Having worked with several copy editors, I found most of them professional and helpful, but Karen has not only been a great support, I felt that we shared the passion for writing, which makes all the difference.
I can only recommend her services and would like to thank Karen once again for the great cooperation and valuable input covering different aspects! A great experience, highly recommended.’  Michael Stolle.
