Mike was the Editor-in-Chief and Team manager for our website/blog Mostbest.com. He is a creative thinker and a quality writer. He also managed a team of six writers. His work ethic was exceptional. His managerial skills were great and he had a good rapport among all the team members. He was our go-to-person for any kind of task.

My sincerest gratitude to Tammy for enriching me by guiding me to find my deepest talents; for inspiring me by quoting insights on how to be a great writer from a variety of astute sources; for encouraging me with her kindness and understanding of the big picture and my personal ones. If there was a letter grade better than an A++, I would give her that esteem.

Mike is an excellent editor. He is incredibly thorough and attentive, and is very skilled at explaining why something isn't working. I would highly recommend his editing services.

Heidi is amazing – she is professional, easy to talk to and most of all, she transformed my book into a more interesting and readable format. Her input gave me the confidence to put my story out into the world. I would recommend Heidi to anyone who needs an editor. She understands what the writer’s challenges are – she “gets it”. She’s great!

Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!

i worked for elaine when she was editor of the chicago tribune's home & garden section. i loved working for her because she always trusted her writers' vision, and let us soar where we believed we might find an updraft. she is one of the hardest workers i know. and recently she produced a spoken word concert, where again she showed her limitless capacity for imagination, for bringing together artists, and for attending to every detail. she is fabulous.

If we're talking about freelance composing/songwriting, I feel that I have one up on the competition. I started studying music before I even learned to read. I have written and recorded hundreds of songs of various genres and styles. Give me a decade or an artist or a feeling and I'll recreate it either to represent a specific time or to modernize it and make it original. I love a challenge!
