Todd was the perfect choice for my small project. He responded to emails in a timely fashion and was upfront about his role in my project. Todd took it a step further and made suggestions on my project and when I took his advice, he edited that too! He was very encouraging and helped me to feel good about my project. I had a few small questions where I wanted his opinion and he immediately responded with his thoughts. Todd was more than an editor to me

Todd edited 15 poems for me that I am publishing. He did a great job, maintaining the heart and soul of my work while improving word choice, meter and readability. He is very reasonable with prices, work came in ahead of schedule, even when we had some technical glitches and I was out of touch for a few days. I will definitely call upon him again and give him my highest recommendation. I interviewed 5 editors and gave them all the same poem to edit. Todd was the only one that showed respect for what I had already written and appreciated my style and tone. This was my first time hiring an editor and Todd made it a painless experience.

    I've worked with Debbie for 18 months but have been a friend for more than that. I love the way she writes (articles and other materials for our company). She is organized, logical, gets to the point but includes human stories and interactions that bring the information in focus. She is honest and real and this comes through in her writing.

      It's a pleasure to work with someone who can communicate the core of your message even better than you can! Luanne "gets" it. A beautiful writer and excellent editor, Luanne is a joy to work with. A true professional!

      Tom was very thoughtful in his feedback on my document (85,000 words) and often offered alternative phrasings in the comments section. He queried things he did not understand clearly and I never felt like he skirted over any sections without checking things properly. His rates were also extremely reasonable for the work done. I was thankful to have another set of eyes to check through my work.

      About

      I have succeeded across a wide variety of assignments, long and short term. I have written editorial op/eds, letters from the CEO, corporate and non-profit communications, analysis, screenplays, ads, marketing collateral and have loved it all. It's always about telling a story in a beautiful or compelling way to connect with your readers. I am not patient, focused, skilled and intuitive.

      About

      As a Harvard-educated English major with an interest in psychology and, quite frankly, a boatload of neuroses (if you think one informs the other, you're probably right!), the intricacies of wordplay and effective messaging have always fascinated me. After graduation, I chose to go into the field of communications, which provided me with a solid foundation in PR and marketing writing styles. Despite trying to leave this field in my next role, the passion to write -- and, even more pressingly, to edit -- kept coming back to me and guiding the projects I sought out. In my full-time positions, I have ghostwritten legal blogs for the senior counsel of a major tech corporation; edited numerous academic manuscripts for successful submission and publication, as well as a doctoral dissertation; authored Commencement speeches for a university dean; and much more. My diverse background means I'm able to tackle pretty much any project and any content that is fired my way.
