I met Delores at a writing conference. I am a professional editor and Writing Coach. There I was facilitating a discussion on creating a proposal. She shared her work with me and the writing was solid, the topic well thought out and her obvious expertise was impressive. I meet dozens of writers every year in my line of work and Delores is an excellent writer, teacher and presenter.

    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.

    Laura worked with me on an extensive book project on contemporary art for the University of Lüneburg, and her profound grasp of the subtleties of language was invaluable, particularly in editing such complex subject matter. As a translator it is extremely important to me to be able to work with a good editor, who is not only technically versed in grammar and punctuation, but also approaches each text with sensitivity and understanding, as Laura Freeburn certainly does.

      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!

      I recently published a book, and Janet was an absolute DREAM to work with as the editor! Seriously. My greatest concern with this project was wanting to see and hear my voice come through on the pages. Janet made that happen! I could hear my voice come to life. Not only was the finished manuscript flawless, no errors, but there was also a TON of amazing feedback and respect of my vision for the book. Her feedback was honest and constructive, a passionate critique of my writing style, and there were even a few laughs for the both of us. What a joy to work with! AND, Janet even went above and beyond to create a unique and personalized video tutorial to guide me through the process of reviewing her edits in Word. Can't say enough to express how happy I am with the results of working with Janet!

      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!!!!

      About

      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!
