Praise from our author! 
Thank you, Isabel McManus, for your kind words! 

" My experience with Linda Langton has been fabulous. As a writer this is what I needed in order to see my own truths as a writer. This experience with Langtons International Agency has helped improve my flaws. This is what I searched for, a real professional opinion and I must take it in if I am going to learn. This is a place surrounded by kind, professional workers and I have learned much.
I will always be grateful to Linda and her entire staff and contacts!"
