The following is a representative sample of what some of my most loyal clients have to say about working with me. For more recommendations of my work, please visit my LinkedIn profile. My client approach reflects a commitment to bringing each project to its full potential while delivering constructive criticism aimed at nurturing growth.
T. B. Markinson is a prolific writer whom I’ve assisted in numerous editing capacities.
Jeri Walker and I have worked together on several projects so far and I hope to work on many more in the near future. She’s proofread three of my novels and has also critiqued and copy edited a fourth. In addition, she’s helped me prepare blog posts and has written blurbs for my novels. Her insights and guidance are much appreciated and they help me take my writing to the next level. Each time Jeri has gone above and beyond my expectations and she’s a pleasure to work with. Her sense of humor and dedication helps me get through each round of edits and I’m lucky to have her on my team.
Larry Crane’s latest novel received multiple rounds of feedback from me. The revisionist history angle tested my skills with the incorporation of actual police transcripts and the need for meticulous footnotes.
As I get closer to publication of my new novel Missing Girls, I wanted to say that I’m really indebted to you for your great attention to detail as copy editor. I’m not built for that I guess, and it’s an enormous help for you to attend to all the issues having to do with proper use of language, punctuation, etc. But, maybe even more importantly, I think your comments are often the impetus that sends me back into the story to clarify, expand, and expound on more of the whys and wherefores of events and character motivations. It’s good to see that your editing etc. career has really taken off. You’re going great guns. I think you’re really topnotch.

I hired Jeri to write a press release. As promised, she made every word count! Having been impressed with what I’ve seen of Jeri’s line editing, she was my first choice when I needed someone to quickly condense a large amount of information into a bite-sized release. I’m extremely happy with Jeri’s work and recommend her as a line editor and press release writer.
Susan P. Cooper and I have collaborated for over three years on editing her life stories, wine reviews, and recipes from Finding Our Way Now.
Jeri has been an amazing asset in my ability to create my first stand-alone book Lessons From An Ordinary Life: Childhood. Her work is meticulous and careful. Her editor’s eye has given me the very thing I needed to make the book what it is. That is particularly important to me because I am dyslexic. She sees what I don’t and is able to correct my work in such a way that it still sounds like me. That is what sets her apart from other editors, her ability to do all that she does with her editing without losing the writer’s voice. That is a gift. I am very grateful for having found her and will be using her services for all my future projects.
