I have worked with Sangeeta on and off for over nine years, and she's
always impressed me by her intelligence, her editorial insight, her
discerning taste, and her hard work. I would recommend Sangeeta's
editorial services to anyone who wants to be a better writer!

“phenomenal in her ability to see the story as a whole and in parts”
“I think very highly of Sangeeta. She is phenomenal in her ability to see the story as a whole and in parts. Sangeeta’s expertise begins with plot, characterization, pacing, motivation, and so much more as she dives in your fictional world to help you nail the essence of your story. I would work with Sangeeta in a heartbeat.”

“a delightful experience”
Sangeeta's cheerful personality and enthusiasm for editing popped off the page from the very first e-mail and never wavered. Her professionalism and knowledge base is extensive and her gentle approach to coaxing the best out of an author makes the editing process a delightful experience. She literally had me at “hello.'”

"said simply, she will make your book better"
I worked with Sangeeta on a completed draft of my novel. Said simply, she will make your book better. She made wonderful suggestions that I would have never thought of. Her approach to my work was thoughtful and specific to my writing and story. As I moved forward editing my draft, I repeatedly referred back to her edit letter to shape my story.
—James Gain, author of Mrs. Diffner's Children
“committed, conscientious, and a consummate professional”
Committed, conscientious, and a consummate professional—that’s how I’d describe Sangeeta Mehta. Having supported an intense crew of authors in our very busy department for several years, Sangeeta quickly gained the trust and respect of many members of our team and we’ve continued to seek her valuable assistance even after she left the company. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for astute, sound editorial guidance in the realm of children’s and young adult books.
—Andrea Spooner, VP, Editorial Director, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
“keen eye for detail”
Sangeeta has a true talent for pulling the best out of a manuscript. She has a keen eye for detail while never losing sight of the bigger picture. She is smart and honest and a gift to any writer who's lucky enough to work with her.
—Annabel Monaghan, co-author of Click! The Girl’s Guide to Knowing What You Want and Making it Happen (Simon Pulse) and author of A Girl Named Digit (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
“truthful, judicious, thorough”
Sangeeta is always truthful, judicious, thorough and concerned about her clients and their work, treating them and their writing with respect and skilled expertise. I would trust her to the ends of the earth with any of my clients. She is simply the best.
