It was great working as copy editor with Cathryn Petit on ‘Lydia’, the prequel to her developing saga, ‘Sisters of the Silk Veil’. I helped Cathryn sharpen her writing and ensure the diverse parts of the story fit together cohesively.
I highly recommend this short story. It’s empathetic, claustrophobic and gives stark insight into how easy it is to fall into a negative spiral. We follow Lydia as she struggles to look after her young family and the institutional and bureaucratic nets close evermore tightly around her.
