"Michelle, I absolutely love the way you edit! There is not even one tiny aspect of your excellent work that I do not fully appreciate. I love your experience, your expertise, your astute capture of my message, your precision, your full measure of competence. It comes across clearly and repeatedly! And, more, I love the way you enjoy the process. "
Dean Nelson – Beyond the Threshold: Simple Transformational Techniques to Awaken Your Potential (his third book)
Services – Heavy Developmental Editing
"Michelle is brilliant! She did an outstanding job editing my latest book, Beyond The Threshold. She encouraged and motivated me to dig deeper and create more meaningful, easy to understand passages. She inspired me greatly and helped bring out the very best of my writing skills. Michelle is the most talented, intuitive editor I have worked with. She will be the only editor I consider for my future books. Thank you, Michelle, for guiding and directing me with such precision, for making my book far better than it would have been, and for believing in me."

Services – Line Editing, co-creation

She worked tirelessly on this book, Don't Just Speak It, Write It, like it was her own and actually added the appendix at the end of the book to further help every ministry leader write and finish their own books."
