CHRISTY MARX (creator of Jem and the Holograms, writer for G.I. Joe, and Senior Narrative Designer at Zynga):
It was my great pleasure to have Rachel as my editor at DC Comics, especially during the reboot and writing of Sword of Sorcery aka Amethyst. She gave me support on many levels. Her editing skills are excellent. She understands story, character development, and pacing. When she had to present me with a problem or change in direction, she was always ready with possible solutions and ideas at the same time. She would listen to my writerly rants with patience, keeping a level head while she guided me in the direction I needed to go. I’m happy to count Rachel as both a creative resource and a friend.
SHOLLY FISCH (President of MediaKidz Research & Consulting, writer for DC Entertainment, Dynamite, and more):
Of all the many editors I've worked with over the years, Rachel is one of my favorites -- smart, funny, and one of those rare editors who collaborates closely with a writer and only makes changes that genuinely improve the story. Not to mention that, even when I bring her my goofiest ideas, Rachel's reply will inevitably be to suggest tossing in something even goofier too. It's always a pleasure to work with Rachel, a good friend and a great editor.
ADAM BENDER (Journalist and writer of We, the Watched and Divided We Fall):
Rachel provided great suggestions for improving my story and was thorough in finding grammar and style issues with the text. She was very professional and I could tell that she closely read my novel and wanted it to be the best it could be. Also, Rachel has great communication skills; it was always easy to reach her with questions and to discuss how best to improve problem areas
