'Liz’s [Jensen's] input was invaluable. As well as providing endless encouragement, she asked tough questions, and picked up on things I’d been hoping to get away with (painful, but so necessary). We set a tight deadline for polishing the novel – and met it. When I wobbled about sending out – always more to fix! – Liz said, do it. I had interest from several agents, and am now represented by Annette Green, of Annette Green Authors’ Agency. The novel is currently out with publishers. I was also thrilled when it was shortlisted – one of 12, out of over 1,000 entries – for the Mslexia Novel Competition. Liz gave me confidence and belief, in my story and my abilities. She was unfailingly generous and enthusiastic. I would recommend her as a mentor to anyone serious about improving their writing.'
