“Working with Jess was as joyful as it was productive and enriching. She nurtured my ideas, uncovering authentic themes and drawing out the best in my manuscript. Her editing style is clear, concise and full of enthusiasm.” —Leela Cyd, author of Food with Friends

 “Jess worked tirelessly to clarify and market our book ideas. She’s an old-fashioned editor: involved but respectful. She toned, rather than pruned. Together, we landed two cookbooks on QVC. You can’t beat that sort of team work!” —Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, authors of The Great American Slow Cooker Book and The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book

“Jessica was our editor at Clarkson Potter. She also served as our advocate, manager, and cat-wrangler. We owe her a book.” —Bryan Petroff and Douglas Quint, authors of Big Gay Ice Cream
