"I worked with Alanna on my latest novel and having her eyes and brain at my disposal really helped it turn out to be something special. Not only is she an absolute joy to work with, but she's a remarkably talented author and well-read reader, so she approaches her work with a strong combination of backgrounds. Ever since working with her, she's become one of my most trusted confidants when it comes to writing and at this point I couldn't imagine my writing career without her." —William F. Aicher, author of 'A Confession'
