Testimonials & Featured writing

Working with Dalene has been a pleasant experience and has made the difference in bringing forward my voice and the enhancement of my life experiences. I recommend Dalene to anyone who wants detailed and professional help with writing and publishing their story.

Charles Johnston, author of Driving Force

Dalene was a pleasure to work with. Her talent at shaping my words and chapters into a finished product (book) was done with professionalism and ease. She really knows how to structure “happenings” for better flow and makes excellent suggestions. Communication was always top priority and I always felt Dalene kept the project and me on task for deadlines.

Connie Hill, author of The Story of Grace

Herb has had so many compliments on his book. We are so thankful that he was able to finish it while still able to do so. Thanks to your expertise and steady leadership, it is something that the friends and family will always treasure.

Catherine & Herb McKim, author of An Exercise in Design
