"Whatever strengths you think you have, whatever gems in your writing, Meredith Bernstein inspires even more. She’s fierce for her clients, protective, comforting, and quick to bring out the best in all you want. I adore her. I trust her. Editors love her. She’s a find."
Sharon Naylor Toris, author of 30+ books, including THE STORIES OF THIS HOUSE
