Your talent for writing and editing knows no bounds. This project has been in my head for years. It has undergone many revisions, but you got me through it all with meticulous detailed guidance that developed and shaped the plot line, got these chapters into existence, and forced me to keep going when I wanted to hang it up.

Plus you are professional and kind.”
~ Debra Diamond, Diary of a Death Doula (forthcoming)
