"Dr. Mark Stibbe was recommended to me by a New York Times best selling author. He has certainly lived up to such a noteworthy introduction. The insight and craft that Mark brought to my comedy novel was remarkable. He has mentored me during the entire writing process and encouraged me, bringing the best out of my ability. I have no doubt that Mark makes the difference between a good and a great book. Superb!"
Simon Page, author of 'Missing Gretyl'

"Mark has the ability to prod, question, advise and help re-create in a way that draws out the writer's intentions and desires. In my experience that has led to a final manuscript that is clearer, more readable and one I am much happier with. I highly recommend his work"
Andy Matheson, author

"Mark has compiled readers’ reports and reviews for Authentic Media to the highest standard. His ability to quickly assess and dissect a manuscript has enabled the publishing team at Authentic to effectively manage the commissioning process with much greater efficiency and to a higher standard than ever before. We thoroughly recommend him for his contribution to our department”.
