Deborah Drake is incredible! I was first introduced to Deb over a year ago, after she invited me to be a part of her weekly writing group we affectionately called Tuesdays with Deborah or better known to us as A Writers Support Group for Reticent Bloggers. She created a safe haven for writers and bloggers to incubate their ideas and share thoughts weekly. Which turned out to be some of the best inspiration, not only for my writing, but for my business as well. I have also had the opportunity to work with her on my first book, The Art of Working for Yourself which she was my editor and voice on my shoulder, helping me get out of my own way. I have to thank her for helping me keep my writing voice as the project went along. As tough as the process sometimes was for me, Deb was pivotal in making sure I stayed on track and helped me flush out ideas from the cover to my bio. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. What more can I say, Deb is good at what she does.

I had a great experience working with Louisa. She helped me edit my essays for graduate schools. As a non-native speaker, I was worried at first because I was not sure an American editor could understand my sense immediately. However, Louisa is very patient and professional. After a bit of discussion, I was amazed that she got a sense of my perspective so quickly and helped me to explore the thoughts I wanted to express. In the process, she also taught me a lot of useful info on grammar and sentences. I am so appreciative of her help! For sure, Louisa is the person you want to work with!
My job is to make you and your writing look good. I have spent more than thirty years honing my eye for detail and my ear for the right words and rhythm. I believe in treating you and your text with respect. I work with companies, organizations, and individuals to carefully edit and rewrite content tailored to their needs. I perform meticulous and mindful editing of academic articles and books, self-help books and memoirs, history books and historical novels, business documents, and technical documentation. In addition to correcting spelling and grammatical errors, I help make your text easier to understand so that readers do not stumble over words, phrases, or ideas. Text that is clear inspires confidence and trust and helps you better connect with your audience. I pride myself on being professional and respectful.
Judith was both editor and publisher of my book in 2012. Her technical skills for the page were exceptional. She has a fine eye for detail and for artistic look. Her keen sense of story made the book better on every level. The prospect of getting a book to print and to e-reader readiness was daunting for this author. Judith handled it all professionally and with good humor. Tasks were accomplished on time. The finished product has garnered many compliments. I'm very happy to be working with her on a second book.

It is with genuine enthusiasm that I recommend Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, and editorial project manager. Lynn is exceptionally smart and strategic, quickly grasping all relevant data and key points of emphasis, and then communicates in clear and concise prose to suit any business project. At the same time, she has a woman's keen intuition and insight that make her equally well suited for more sensitive subjects and assignments. Lynn also has an editor's eye for great versus more common writing, whether on more complicated subjects or with the simple turn of a phrase that results in the most compelling communication. Net, she can write for you or make your writing better. Importantly, Lynn has invaluable experience in the high-octane world of Hollywood television and film. She brings fire-hardened skills in working successfully under pressure and in a more visible environment with lofty expectations. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, Lynn is a wonderful colleague and teammate. She's punctual, delivers her work on time and on the mark, and always delights with the outcome. She is truly a pleasure with whom to work, and I recommend her most highly. I

I am willing to take the time to ensure each student succeeds. I check up regularly even after the tutoring sessions are over to confirm a solid understanding of the topic was developed. I do not do work for individuals but instead guide through them the questions and tasks at hand to ensure they are properly approaching the assignment.
