One of the best professional writers I have come across. Born wordsmith. Knows exactly how to handle the tricky and delicate circumstances. Ability to re-frame anything to fit the desired result. Whether it is spinning a negative into a positive or writing with emotion to evoke a desired result, she is a master of all. My experience has been wonderful.

I strongly believe that the ability to write an effective and targeted resume to get the attention of potential employers requires special skills, and Michele definitely possesses these skills. Within a week after she completed my resume, I landed a new job that fit my interests, skills and experience. I am extremely satisfied with Michele's work as a resume writer and highly recommend her.

Michael is an outstanding book editor. I've been working with him on my manuscript for the past two years. He excels in the intangibles, with terrific suggestions about improving a story's pace, character development and plot. So often when Michael suggests something, a lightbulb goes off in my head and I think: Of course! Why didn't I think of that? Beyond his uncanny ability to see where my story should be going, he also detects what's missing. This is a trait any writer wants to have in an editor--an ability to identify what needs to be added or expanded upon. Beyond his professional editing skills, Michael is consistently prompt and turns drafts around well within his promised timeframe. Michael is not only a great editor but he can, if needed, be a coach as well. He knows what his writers are going through, because he's a writer himself. He has been important to me in his coaching role, because he's helped me plow through the rough spots that are inevitable in completing something as complicated as a novel. He becomes a partner in getting the job done, and his words of encouragement and hope make all the difference.

Marian is one of the most ambitious, proactive and provocative writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. While writing for DBW, she did a great job of eliciting valuable insights from industry thought leaders, identifying worthwhile new media opportunities for authors, and walking the walk when it comes to social media. Don't be fooled by her age; she's smart beyond her years.

We are already experiencing increased web traffic and better organic serach results through her work. She is also highly professional, friendly, and delivers quality work on time. We'd definitely recommend her.

Verified review

I have worked with Jeff for the last three years, and he is, without a doubt, one of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. As his supervisor, I worked with him closely, and he consistently delivered products that were high quality. He is always open to feedback, and embodied the voice of our organization in person and via communications (digital, social, etc.). He is passionate about social justice, education, the arts, and was a champion and ally for our students. His playfulness and professionalism made him an invaluable asset to our organization.
