Praise for Kim Catanzarite

While editing my middle-grade historical fiction, Kim scrutinized every word and gave knowledgeable guidance on how to correct my errors. Kim was instrumental in flushing out a few scenes, questioning my protagonist's motivation, and encouraging me to rework my ending. With her help, Citrus Green received a first place Royal Palm Literary Award for middle-grade fiction, and it went on to win best overall work of children’s literature.—Annette Masters
