She mindfully listened and asked insightful questions that enabled her to cut through the maze of my disperse ideas and allowed her to arrive to simple, practical and timely creative options. Cathy’s personable and straight forward approach framed our very productive, rewarding and long lasting professional relationship.”

SPECIAL PROJECTS MANAGER
TO DR. RICHARD LEAKEY
“I consider Christine not just a very good editor but a brilliant editor.” I know I can rely on Christine for advice about anything pertaining to writing and editing, from press releases and brochures to thank you letters, and her love of the written word is obvious. As a colleague, she is cheerful and supportive, someone who enjoys the give-and-take of discussions and respects the constraints of time and budgets. In short, I am happy to recommend her and the quality of her work to anyone requiring a highly skilled, highly knowledgeable writer and editor.”
“It is a great pleasure to write a letter of support for Christine. We worked together closely for five years at Dorling Kindersley Publishers in London, several of those on the 20-volume MindPower series for Time Life Books. Her considerable knowledge on a wide range of subjects and her infectious enthusiasm made her an invaluable team member; she was much liked by everyone. Christine’s editorial skills were of the highest standard, combining a meticulous eye for detail with great skill and sensitivity when working on an author’s text. I considered her to be the best editor on our team, and she was always generous with advice and support to the other editors. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Christine; she would be a great asset to any team.”
SEAN M. SATER, PHD
“Christine is an excellent editor. I needed someone to help me with an academic article I submitted to the biggest journal in my field and she gave me the best service I could have hoped for. I am proud to say that my article was accepted almost immediately after her excellent and timely edits. The reviewer said that my article was perfect “as is.” I owe this to Christine and her attention to detail, encouragement, and support in getting my paper “in shape.” I cannot recommend both Catherine and Christine enough.”
