Apple Books Winner, “Best of the Year So Far" 2020
"I have worked with Kathleen on two full manuscripts, including my debut novel, WILDLAND, and I hope I get the opportunity to work with her again in the future. She has a keen eye for what’s working, what’s not, and, perhaps most importantly, what’s missing, and her thoughtful feedback permits every story to shine. Her suggestions, both broad and specific, helped me fine-tune my work while respecting the soul of the story, and her encouragement kept me moving forward even when that was a challenge. With Kathleen, you can be confident that you and your manuscript will be in good hands. "

“My coach, Kathleen Furin, is a delightful person and fantastic fit as an editor. She has given me the accountability, critique, and guidance to take my story to the next level.
For the first time, my book isn’t just a dream. It’s turning into a reality. My potential as a writer and the full scope of this book are coming to be. Worth every penny. Thank you!”

"Thank you to Kathleen for her perceptive comments on my novel. In a few paragraphs, she has gone to the heart of several problems with the story and pointed to solutions in a way that's constructive, but not overbearing.
Thank you to Kathleen for reading it so thoughtfully!"

“The Story Genius was a fantastic writing course. It kicked my butt in all the right ways! Thank you SO much to my book coach Kathleen Furin who was the perfect match for me. I loved, loved, loved everything about it, even during the moments when I was thumping my head softly against the desk top. It's the best writing course ever.”

“Kathleen is insightful, helpful, constructive, supportive, and I feel that she truly believes in my work. The story that I am crafting is a big one--well beyond my current abilities as a writer. I would feel lost and frustrated without Kathleen. Instead, I feel confident and skillful. Kathleen is everything I had hoped for, and all that her services purport themselves to be.”
