Kira Aitch is a writer and sensitivity reader currently studying library science and information to become either a school or research librarian. When she is not reading or in classes, she is writing research papers and browsing databases for fun.

She especially loves helping writers if details and facts and will not hesitate to compile a source list if necessary. Given enough time, she can compile a list of sources or even a paper on everything from the Vikings to mythology to the history of corn. She is more than happy to help with research!

She will give you more information than necessary for those who love historical accuracy, context, or just every version of a myth possible. She also will compile current news sources or even scientific papers when necessary, as she has paid for and gained access to journals and databases for her own enjoyment, and loves to share that with others.

Kira loves reading fantasy, historical fiction, and adventure, but finds that a good book can come from any source. She’s also happy to read any LGBTQIA+ fiction you have!

What Clients Say


Salt & Sage was recommended to me by a friend. From the very beginning, everyone at Salt & Sage was helpful, knowledgeable, and communicative. The editor who read my manuscript, Kira, sent me detailed, thoughtful insight that I am so incredibly grateful for. Thank you to Kira and everyone at Salt & Sage for a great experience!


I reached out to Salt and Sage for a sensitivity read on a historical fiction graphic novel script. The process went very smoothly, and everyone I interacted with on the project team was very conscientious and friendly. Kira was excellent! She thoughtfully addressed all my concerns and questions in detail and with a warm enthusiasm, as well as shared her own feelings about the moments that particularly struck her as a reader. I greatly appreciated her perspective and the time she took with my work. Thank you! I’d also like to add how much I appreciate seeing how Salt & Sage looks out for the well-being of its editors in its processes. It seems like a place that really cares about its staff, and that’s something that’s important to me when it comes to who I’m working with.
