Review:

I’m pleased to endorse Susan Palmquist’s forthcoming book. I recently had the pleasure of editing two of her fiction books written under the pen name Vanessa Devereaux. Ms. Palmquist is a talented and knowledgeable writer with an innate sense of story. I’ve worked with many romance authors over the years, and Ms. Palmquist impressed me with her flair for language, her ability to get inside her characters’ heads and hearts, and her consummate professionalism. I have the utmost confidence in her knowledge and experience as a romance author.
--Lynne Anderson, Editor and former editor at Cobblestone Press
