For five years, Marla was my editor at Do South Magazine in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and I've learned more about writing from her than from anyone else. I have never met anyone who is so dedicated to the craft and art of writing as she is. She eats, lives, and breathes it. Simply put, she knows what works on the page and what doesn't. Even when marking up the page or asking for a re-write, she never fails to be professional, kind, and encouraging. In short, hire her.
