Keph Senett is a masterful storyteller who delivers perfectly polished copy. An editor’s dream.

Just met Keph Senett. Just as funny and inappropriate in person. Awesome.

Her work stirs emotion and she clearly and concisely paints pictures. I find her style to be fresh and human and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking authentic, interesting writing.
