Martin’s ‘Lady M’ is “clever, funny, evocative and moving,” says Hendry, “but it’s also unflinchingly honest.” – Lorna Hendry, Judge of 2015 Grace Marion Wilson Emerging Writers’ Competition

“I have often asked her to edit my writing and reviews, and she always offers insights and valuable advice. She has a nack for beautiful writing and always gives suggestions for well crafted sentences that convey my ideas and thoughts perfectly and succintly. She always does so with a gentle and caring manner.” – Rachel Eadie, Manager – Scorpio Books & Reviewer for Radio New Zealand
