‘If the devil is in the details, then Fedi is in the editing’, this is the motto I suggested to Federica for advertising her service. I asked Federica to help me rework an old novel written a number of years earlier: there was a need for some in-depth editing and for a reworking of each character’s ‘tone of voice’, to restore their own distictive voices. She did so much more. Reading her extremely detailed notes on the text and her always ample and clever comments has been like attending an intensive creative writing course that taught me a lot. Federica is a real scholar of narrative techniques and an excellent professional. Very recommended!
