Testimonials

Anna is a truly splendid writer with a fabulous instinct for what children love and especially for what makes them laugh. In fact I'd go as far as to say she's hilarious. She's fast, flexible and reliable. And she can come up with a cracking editorial concept or plan based on the flimsiest of ideas. I recommend her whole-heartedly.

Anna is an exceptionally funny writer, as well as a talented and highly intelligent editor. Her capacity to enliven the most mundane set of facts has provided our readers with amusing, accurate and absorbing text. She has the ability to collate and convey information and ideas clearly, but it is her quirky humour and incisive use of language that lifts her work out of the ordinary.

Anna is one of my favourite editors to work with. She's intelligent, personable, resourceful and always very professional. She works hard to make a book the best it can possibly be.

Anna Bowles’ editing is incisive, sharp and savvy. Particularly helpful were her comments on narrative structure and characterisation. Her input has been invaluable in crafting a manuscript that has both literary merit and market potential. I highly recommend her services to new writers.
