    Does the thought of writing your own bio for your website or Linkedin make you panic? I know I did. That's why I've hired Lisa. In fact, I've hired Lisa more than once to write my bio. I'm continually amazed at how she's been able to summarize my strengths, talents and personality, by asking some simple questions. She took my answers, and turned them into something that I read and thought "wow, is that really me"? (and she made it FUN to work with her!) Whether she's writing an article, a profile or whatever else, I enjoy being the reader of her writing.

    Not only is he polite and courteous, he responds in a timely manner despite what he may have going on. He's honest in his review of a manuscript and he puts all he has into the editing process while ensuring that he keeps it in the context you want it in. I will definitely use his services again.

    My experience working with Megan has been absolutely amazing! Unlike other editors I have worked with, her editing style matched the tone of my writing. You can't even tell where she edited my work. I would highly recommend her and I plan on hiring her for many future projects.

    Jeffrey was very helpful to me as I pursued my Master's Degree over the past few years. Because over ten years had passed before returning to school, I realized the need for an editor who could help me clarify my thinking and simplify my writing. On more than one occasion, this resulted in finished papers that professors recommended be submitted for publishing.

      I worked with Orrin Grey and Castle Danger Press numerous times during my tenure as the managing editor for Skull Island eXpeditions, a fiction imprint of Privateer Press. I commissioned Orrin to write short stories, novellas, and tabletop gaming material. Orrin was exceedingly professional and never failed to deliver high-quality work by the deadline.

      As a copyeditor, Erin Griggs is thorough and possessed of a discerning eye, catching those things that it’s all too easy for a writer to miss once they’ve lived with a manuscript for a considerable amount of time. As a content reader, she excels, bringing a broad base of academic knowledge, an understanding of genre conventions, and ability to frame story questions with sensitivity, never imposing personal preference on an author’s intent or vision.

        I’ve worked with Rich on a considerable number of writing projects for proposals and general marketing solutions. I can say without a doubt that he is the most talented and dependable writer/editor with whom I’ve worked. Rich provided editorial leadership to our entire team. He has the self-confidence, skill, and fearlessness that our team not only depended upon, but that we learned from in delivering winning messages.

          Rachel Beck Photography There are people in life who have a talent with writing and grammar; I am not one of those people. My career in photography requires a lot of writing for PR and marketing. I may have the ideas, but when it comes to putting them together and making sure the piece is written professionally, there is only one person that I count on. Her name is Dee Dee Squires. I have known her for ten years. There is no reason for you to look any further for an editor or writer. She is a perfectionist and I deeply appreciate that about her. She is a master of the English language. In life we have to realize our flaws and search for the talented people who can help us. I deeply admire and respect her for her talents and will not work with anyone else when it comes to writing and editing. Rachel
