“Lisa Ahn is a shaman with words. For more than eight years, she has taken the raw material of my fiction, nonfiction, and poetry and not only found the overwritten metaphors and plot holes, but she’s seen straight into the cracks in my work, into the fine fissures in my heart. Time and again, Lisa has gently, kindly, encouraged me to write the words that terrified me, and I am deeply grateful for her wisdom, steady presence, and meticulous eye.”
