I couldn't have asked for a more insightful developmental editor, adept at both fiction and non-fiction. In my last non-fiction book, "Rasputin: The Memoirs of His Secretary," Bryna pointed out many areas that required elucidation for readers who might not be as familiar with the history as I was. She asked some very tough questions and made me hone the continuity and flow of the work.
Bryna's feedback on a novel I'm writing has been invaluable as far as what makes sense and what doesn't, what works and what doesn't, what's unclear, the balance between narrative and dialog, pacing, segues, point of view, etc.
Her assessments are very incisive and the result is a very clean, cohesive work. She was not only timely in responding, but encouraging as well.
Her own book, "The Accidental Anarchist," is evidence of her natural talent, where she manages to make non-fiction read like fiction.
Frankly, I cannot imagine using another editor. It's not just that her editorial comments are spot on, but she asks hard-hitting questions about the work that make you think about what you're doing, how you're doing it, where you're going and who you're appealing to.
