What other people have said: 

"Deborah is an absolute gem to work with. She has such a strong eye for story and character and really helped finesse the story at every part of editing process, from the preliminary major questions, down to the nit-picky intricacies of the final working drafts. She will most definitely be my first choice dramaturg for the next time I need one."
