Client Testimonial

Recently, under pressure to get my ghostwriting assignment (a book on alternative medicine) done, I turned to Valerie for a professional edit of a key chapter. She did it meticulously--weeding out inconsistencies in the writing, typos, and other mistakes--and on time. Good work, Valerie!
