Helen R., memoirist in her 90th year
"Sandy was very supportive in this important life process: telling my stories of childhood, gathering this for family's been good for me. I happily encourage others to use her service. Appreciate her interest, hard work, help all the way."
Son, David:
"This memoir's an opportunity for Mum to share amazing stories. She'd been shy about sharing, but is an amazing writer with a rich history. Sandy coaxed Mum in ways that left her feeling heard and happy – very positive. This is a process to be encouraged – storytelling is a powerful tool."

L. Werden, author of fiction novella, Black Blood

"Sandy's editor skills are phenomenal. I felt totally safe in her literary hands for my first novella. Sandy completely assimilated my character and offered ideas that kept the storyline moving, even when I had writer's block! Her rapid response was especially important with a publisher waiting for my manuscript. Working with her as my communication advisor was a breath of fresh air."

K. Smith, repeat client, won Lt. Governor's achievement award in arts and culture:

"Helpful [business writing] analysis, feedback. Sandy's invigorating, inspiring."

S. Stevenson's (repeat client) book is a Police College resource on abuse trauma:

"Stellar job editing and organizing my storyline... utmost respect, sensitivity."
