Kirsten is a fantastic coach. I have learnt so much about myself from our sessions, she has helped me find ways to step out of my comfort zone with confidence and to ditch the negative self talk that was holding me back.
I had some big breakthroughs in my session with Kirsten. I’d been feeling a bit unsure of myself as a writer and wanted to be more confident in sharing my work with others. With Kirsten’s guidance I was able to realize what was behind these feelings and create actionable steps to grow my confidence. By the end of our call I walked away feeling so much clearer, confident and creatively inspired!
I’m a Confident Creative!
This coaching session was very eye opening and made me realize that I can get out of my own way and work toward being a more confident creative!
Warm & Inviting
Kirsten made the space warm, inviting, fun, and judgment free! Her observations were helpful. I genuinely left the session feeling lighter and more empowered than when I logged in.
She let me shine through my finished work…
Kirsten’s gentle yet professional editor services helped me polish my poetry collection and make it shine. I appreciated her attention to detail and her editing style didn’t stifle my voice or shift it in anyway. She let me shine through my finished work while offering the professional support I needed.
My coaching sessions with Kirsten were so needed.
They helped me gain clarity and move through some areas within myself that otherwise would have been left unvisited. This helped me remove some blockages that I didn’t even realize have been holding me back in my life and my work. I highly suggest connecting with Kirsten and experiencing the space she holds for you to grow awareness, understanding and clarity on what next steps to take to support yourself with where you’re wanting to go in life.

Kirsten Was An Instant Slam Dunk…
Having anyone read something I have written is nerve-racking. Yet, when looking for an editor, Kirsten was an instant slam dunk. I immediately felt comfortable with Kirsten and knew I could trust her with my material and trust the feedback she provided. She exudes a passion for storytelling and provides enthusiastic suggestions for improvement. What I appreciated were the thought-provoking, yet compassionate, questions she posed. It helped me make my material stronger but in a way that allowed me to still feel in control of the journey of the character. If you are looking for an editor, Kirsten is wonderful. A true cheerleader for the author, the material, and the writing community as a whole!
Kirsten was positive, upbeat, and kind.
She listened attentively, even the many times I went off on a tangent. I appreciated her focus, bringing the conversation to the intended direction, and I walked away with clear goals to work on for personal growth.
Connected and less alone in this new journey…
Sitting down with Kirsten to talk about my writing goals/intentions was very helpful for hearing my blocks from my own voice and getting practical advice on how to rethink and work around them. She encouraged me to find my own process and create a ritual around writing that will help me stay consistent and focused. I got practical writing tips for longer projects which I found very helpful. For example, if I can’t think of what to write in the moment, I can always type a note to myself to insert more on ____ here. She even gave me suggestions that were outside of the normal ways of thinking about writing so that I could expand my mindset on how to get started on a bigger writing project. Thank you Kirsten for sitting with me and listening to my fears and plans around writing! I felt very connected and less alone in this new journey.
Comfortable and engaging!
Kirsten made the session feel so comfortable and engaging. Her encouragement and insight to my individual struggle in certain areas helped me come to my own conclusions, which will help me move forward with more confidence in my ability to better problem solve to accomplish my goals.
I enjoyed having Kirsten as an editor.
I learned techniques and ways to write better and she brought to light little habits I had that I didn’t notice. Kirsten is attentive to details, provides great examples for show and not tell as well as really providing how my characters feel. It was a wonderful experience and I hope to work with her again on my next book.
I loved my session with Kirsten!
The space she creates put me at ease and allowed me to really slow down and get connected with what I desired. Uncovering my next steps felt effortless, and I left feeling so excited for what I’m creating. If you are looking for clarity and creative tools to support what’s next for you, she’s wonderful!
Kirsten was a true delight to work with.
As a proofreader and developmental editor, she was able to provide both constructive critique as well as helpful suggestions, without infringing on my unique take on the story or writing style as an author. She was also very organized and professional, with upbeat energy always. I’d highly recommend her to writers seeking the aforementioned values.
My session with Kirsten was very relaxing.
She was uplifting, encouraging, and patient with my questions. I left the session feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on my day with a pep in my step. Scheduling was super easy and flexible. And she was right on time to start our appointment (and didn’t mind when my cats interrupted).
True Professionalism Right There…
Working with Kirsten was Amazing!
She is passionate about writing, and it comes through in her editing. She was flexible, thorough, insightful, and respected my deadlines. She is a talented professional.

Working with Kirsten…
Has been the type of experience every writer desires: organized, professional, and punctual. The best part about working with her is her compassion for writing and wanting you to have the best version of your work. She’s candid, yet respectful and goes above with her packaging to ensure her services are financially feasible for you. I look forward to working with her on future projects.
I highly recommend Kirsten, she does top notch work…
Choosing an editor is so hard! It has taken me five trial runs, an expensive hit to my pocket book and three books to figure this out. When I ran across Kirsten I knew she was talented, and not only that, she is one of the most positive and uplifting people I have ever known. Finally, I have found the editor for me. Kirsten is firm but gentle, giving the perfect explanations, comments and examples. So not only is the editing going to make the book better, but I can learn as an author too! We work well together and I can honestly say I can call my editor a friend. This is the type of connection we as authors all want in an editor. I highly recommend Kirsten, she does top notch work. I feel confident knowing I can send her my work, it will come back for me to polish and ready for the world!
Kirsten is both a professional editor and friend!
I was invited to write a short story for an anthology for the first time. Since it was going to be published, I knew I needed help from a professional. What’s great about Kirsten is she’s my friend before anything else. She was patient, understanding and that made the process easier. She can work both on a planned deadline and even during the times where you need to rush. She made my writing better, and I will definitely use her services for my future releases!
Thank you for making the editing process fun and smooth, Kirsten! Going through my first editing process with a professional was scary. But you made it a great one!
More power to your craft! x
Creative Mentoring with Kirsten was fantastic!
Not only does she have a calming nature about her but she comes to the meetings well prepared to help you with your writing woes. She is kind and extremely helpful. She really makes the most of the time you spend with her so you get the most out of your sessions. Highly recommend Kirsten!
You cannot find one better than Kirsten McNeill!
I met Kirsten through our social media. We mutually followed each other on Instagram and I became intrigued by her uplifting and informational posts. I found myself looking forward to reading her blog posts and quickly realized she knew her stuff when it came to the world of writing. Not only is her educational background impressive, she has a very clear grasp on what it takes to edit and perfect a story. We began corresponding when she did an Author Interview of me and then reviewed the first book in my series, Angel’s Gate. I was impressed with her honest review, how she equally balanced the good and the bad. After much consideration and review of her content I chose Kirsten to critique the 2nd and 3rd books of my series. Kirsten has a very open and direct way of communicating; she has great insight and truly understands the process. She offered amazing feedback, encouragement, and I will be using her for all of my stories as I continue with my career. If you are looking for an editor that will be honest, insightful and uplifting, you cannot find one better than Kirsten McNeill.
