The Writers’ Mill
—Amy McCutcheon, author“I’ve known Robin Layne for almost nine years. She is a very talented writer. She not only writes beautifully, she writes with all her heart. Her writing is flawless. She goes over work with a fine-toothed comb. She is very responsible and very professional. I find her writing moving and inspiring. It makes me laugh, it brings me to tears, and it touches my heart in every way. I’m so proud of Robin because she’s such an accomplished writer. I think she will go far in her writing and I expect to see her as a published author of her novel soon. Robin has edited many of my poems and done an excellent job. I highly recommend her writing and editing skills.”
—Jan Allyson Goakey, poet“I enjoyed Robin Layne’s help in editing my novel Growlers. Her insight and suggestions helped me to complete a lifelong dream. I would recommend her to any aspiring writer, whether novice, intermediate or expert.”
—Winslow White, novelist
