I have worked with many editors and proofreaders and Dr. Marti clearly stands out as the best. If I could give more stars, I would have. She is thoroughly professional and competent. She made significant improvements in a manuscript that I just submitted to a journal. I have also examined her editing work on one of my student’s 140-page dissertation. The members of the dissertation committee observed and commented on the significant increase in the readability and grammatical correctness of the manuscript after she had edited the document. The quality of her work is outstanding.
Dr. April Michaud is a very thorough and gifted editor and writer. After reviewing her profile on Thumbtack and working with her from start to finish on my resume, she is what she states. She honest, friendly, and gives helpful suggestions. I highly recommend her work and eye for details.
I am a published author, but this project was my first dive into self publishing. Sally was instrumental from the quality of editing the manuscript, to the guidance and nudging in self-publishing. I just completed my first self-publishing manuscript. Sally is definitely going to be on my team for my next publishing projects.
Highly recommend Petrena Wilbur as an editor. She makes clear comments and suggestions on my writing and then she gives the reasons that justify her comments and suggestions. It is obvious to me that her suggestions will improve my work and make me a better writer. I look forward to working with her again. Jesse Carrillo
Nick Courtright worked with me on several poems. He helped me in a way that so far no other editor / writing coach / fellow writer has been able to do, and I am quite grateful for his intervention. He basically helped me cut through the bull shit, and get straight to the meat of my writing. He saw what I could not because I was so personally involved with my work. Nick came to every single one of our meetings knowing the poems better than I did, and worked with me on every single line, every single word. I tend to write long poems, and one of the poem we worked on was over thirty pages long when we started working on it. It is now a good ten pages shorter, and a much better poem. Great big thank you to Nick Courtright. He is an excellent writing coach, editor, and poet. I hope to work with him again in the future.
I had the honor of supervising Lisa Steffek when she worked as a writing consultant at the University of Texas Undergraduate Writing Center (UWC), the largest and busiest writing center in the country (with approximately 11,000 visits a year from writers across all disciplines). As Program Coordinator, I was responsible for the day-to-day running of the writing center, including the training and supervision of the consulting and administrative staff. Over the course of the time that she worked there, Lisa conducted 256 forty-five minute one-on-one writing consultations with UT undergraduates. She was a reliable and committed member of our staff, while at the same time impressively maintaining a high GPA and finishing the dissertation for her doctoral program. In addition to her exemplary job performance, she continually delighted me with her lively mind and rare perspective. Her piercing intelligence and sweet nature are a rare combination and set her apart as one of our finest writing consultants. Extremely highly recommended.
Carole is a talented lawyer and writer and is a source of great knowledge and insights regarding life and business.
Vincent is the most professional writing editor I have ever seen. I went through quite a few writing editors before I met Vincent, and I have to say that the detailed service Vincent provides obviously tops. Vincent is also very fast, and always keep the work down before deadline. I highly recommend.
Morgan is excellent! She's helped me edit a number of essays, and has a great eye for organization and coherence. She also returned notes to me in a very timely manner. She's a pleasure to work with, and far more concise in her feedback than other editors I've encountered. Additionally, Morgan's social media abilities are exemplary, and something I plan to take advantage of in the nearby future.
I've been using Erin to edit my novels since early 2013. I've had two previous editors who were very capable, but Erin's skills are off the chart. She is easy to work with and handles each new job quickly. She has edited four of my novels and will edit many more...as long as I write them.

That's where my background can help you. I have more than 20 years of solid experience in writing, editing, journalism, and public relations. From blogs and social media campaigns to "old school" writing and email newsletters, my passion for clear and concise communication is unparalleled. Give me a call, or shoot me a message; I'd love to see how we can work together.
I hired David to be the editor of my first book, Babies Can Smell Fear. I wanted someone to take my work and make it better without changing my vision. I wanted someone to tell me what did not work in a way to keep confidence high while making the project the best it could be. David accomplished all of that and more. Since I was working on my first book I will admit I did not know fully what to expect or what to do. David walked me through the process and went above and beyond what I asked him to do. He set me up with a design team, helped develop the title and sub title for the book, and answered all of my questions even if they did not fully correspond with his job description. I was very pleased with the final product and so were the Mom's Choice Award judges who awarded my book a Gold level award for Parenting Humor. I know that would not have been possible without David. I highly recommend working with David. He even came to the launch party to celebrate the release of the book.

As a writer, I use my love of language, my keen observational skills as an artist and art historian, and my wry sense of humor to convey my personality and get a message across.
