Hello, I hired Marti to help me with a 3,000 word thesis that I had previously not been successful writing on my own. In the many weeks Marti and I spent communicating on the phone or via email her instructions and patience were both professional and coherent. Many times I became frustrated with my own progress on the paper only to be talked off the ledge by Marti. The bottom line is that Marti delivered exactly what she promised which was the successful completion of my project/paper. I've told Marti on several occasions that if I ever came across any students needing mentoring or professional writing help I would recommend her immediately. Thanks so much Marti for a memorable experience and I'll never forget or will I ever be able to repay you for all your help and guidance! Sincerely, Tim

Gerard was very patient and encouraging with our teenage daughter. She is just now learning about recording and production, and he helped make it a great experience. We will definitely use Gerard again in the future as she writes more songs.

Sally of Inksnatcher was able to get to work editing my book quickly. Going through the self-publishing process is very intimidating the first time around, and I was overwhelmed. She did a nice job editing, but I needed a lot more than that. She was able to provide whatever I needed with her knowledge and experience about all aspects of writing and publishing a book. She also has people available to help with cover design, and anything you need really. She always provided a quick turnaround on the many questions I asked. She guided me through all aspects of publishing my first book, which was a big help, and she is easy to work with.

Nick is a great teacher because he is a careful and enthusiastic reader. He found what worked in my stories and offered useful advice for what was lacking--something that my polite critique group could never do. The best thing I left with, however is less editorial. Nick gave me a technique that helped me trust my own voice by building on smaller elements of language and ideas. I now have a creative cistern that I can dip into and use in various narrative forms. He is whip-smart and insightful and knows how to find the levers that elevate ordinary writing, making it lighter and better. I highly recommend working with him. He is kind, he is funny and he can help.

Adria was a great writing tutor for my 5th grade son over the summer. She worked with him in all aspects of writing to get him ready for middle school. She strengthened his vocabulary, creative writing skills and basic essay composition. She was very knowledgeable and had great ideas about writing prompts and subjects. Thanks for a productive summer!

Dave Dix was one of the smartest, most widely read of those I worked with. He is endowed with a level-headedness that enables him to create the simplest, cleanest tactics to enable his clients to achieve their marketing objectives, with a refreshing preference for the antic over the pedantic.

I have used James in the past for many projects not just for myself but for my customers as well. I do not have any problem recommending him as I know the quality of his work and that the end product will not leave you disappointed. You will have the quality content you need to post on your website, blog, report or anything else that involves content writing/editing. Thanks, James!

Emily tutored my 7th and 10th grade sons in reading comprehension and writing. She did an outstanding job, she was very patient with both boys, especially the 7th grader that hates to read. Their grades improved significantly. She started tutoring both boys together only once a week but we increased to twice a week, each of them individually for 90 minutes. If they had special assignments or reports to write, Emily made herself available to work with them above their regular tutoring sessions. She was always very professional and a joy to have around. She got to know the boys and worked with them based on their interests - she is an amazing tutor. I would highly recommend her.

Specializing in business plans, grant proposals, letters, resumes, legitimate inquiries and fact finding ventures, presentaions and reports. Borrowed from the concept in Malcolm Gladwell's "The Tipping Point" connectors, are "the people in a community who know large numbers of people and who are in the habit of making introductions. A connector is essentially the social equivalent of a computer network hub. They usually know people across an array of social, cultural, professional, and economic circles, and make a habit of introducing people who work or live in different circles. They are people who "link us up with the world ... people with a special gift for bringing the world together." Gladwell attributes the social success of Connectors to the fact that "their ability to span many different worlds is a function of something intrinsic to their personality, some combination of curiosity, self-confidence, sociability, and energy."


I work hard to make sure that both my customer and myself are satisfied with the quality of the document that they have requested. It's very easy to dismiss the power of a well written resume or an inspiring quote to draw a consumer in, I make sure that doesn't happen.

Do you need a weekly blog written for your business? Or did you get inspired and want a song written for your creative project or a dear friend? Do you have a book that you need ghost-written or edited? How about getting some emails copy-written to sell your latest class or product online? And wouldn't it be nice if someone took care of the social media for your business and wrote catchy, captivating posts for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn? If you need help with your business or a project and it involves writing in any capacity, give me a holler! I've done it all and seen even more.

In a phrase, industry knowledge. I can plow through extremely complex subjects ... cut to the essentials ... then generate communications that are razor sharp, to the point, and precisely targeted. I ask a lot of dumb questions, learn fast, and never assume that my audience knows anything more than they should.
