Manuela is an avid reader and a kind editor. She has a unique perspective thanks to her degree in Sustainability & the Environment , which gives her a holistic view of an author’s work. She also enjoys helping writers polish their piece regarding the biggest aspects, like theme, and the tiniest details, like whether a character already tried broccoli in the second chapter, yet claims to have never heard of the vegetable in chapter twenty.
She loves books of all genres (poetry and creative nonfiction included) and enjoys helping writers bring their ideas to life. Some of her favorite novels are by Jasmine Guillory, Elle Kennedy, and Kendare Blake. Her own writing has been published by So to Speak Journal and inQluded.
