“I enjoyed working with Christina Boys for more than a decade on over twenty of my books. Christina is an exceptionally skilled and experienced editor. She has a good eye for details, and gave clear and helpful suggestions that helped me improve and polish my manuscripts. She is easy to collaborate with, and always handled my books with care and professionalism. She also did excellent work creating the abridged manuscripts for my Successful People series and Power series.

"I've had the privilege of working with some amazing editors over the years and understand what a great editor can do. Each of my editors has had a real impact on helping me notch-up my work, of helping me become a better writer. Christina Boys is such an editor. She took on A Guitar and a Pen, and her ability to ask the right questions resulted in a far better book. I am most grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her."
— Robert Hicks, New York Times Bestselling Author of Widow of the South and A Guitar and a Pen
“Christina is uniquely gifted in that she can roll up her sleeves and get in the nitty-gritty, tackling phrasing, word-choice, and all the line-by-line stuff while also being able to helicopter above and not lose her perspective of the larger narrative, tension, and story arc. When we first met, she helped me take a book in trouble and turn it into something I’m very proud of. Bottom line, she made each successive book better and I would recommend her without reservation."

We hit all interim deadlines, and produced a book true to all my aspirations.”

"I've been a working journalist for a decade now—which means I've worked with a ton of editors!—and Christina is one of the best. With my most recent book, Christina worked with me to restructure it (I LOVE the new order of things) and identified things I'd missed in the manuscript that I know most editors never would have seen. And she did it all with kindness, patience and a great attitude. I highly, highly recommend Christina."
