"I contracted Nikki to edit a first draft of my novel before I had even completed it. Nikki provided excellent insight and feedback to help me keep the novel flowing. I was particularly grateful for her feedback on some edits to my dialogue which has improved my overall writing skills beyond this first novel. I also found her coaching style to be very encouraging which was important to me in my first attempt at writing a novel. Now I am writing a sequel!"

When I decided to publish my book "Successful Education: How to Educate Creative Engineers," I had a big problem in finding an editor who would be willing to work with me. My expectations were very high. I wanted an outstanding product, I wanted the editing to be done in a week, and the book was more a "knowledge soup" than a "knowledge system." I am very happy to report that choosing Nikki as the editor of my book was the best decision I had made in years. She exceded all my expectations. First, she developed a deep understanding of my ideas and was able to recommend a fundamental restructuring of the book. Even more, her simple but poetic English made the book easy to read and very clear in its message. Our cooperation was truly enjoyable for me. "

"Nikki improved my manuscript immensely. She showed me where a different arrangement could smooth the bumpy, jostling sequence of my ideas and give them a stronger flow. Doing so, I know, is not only kinder to my readers but it increases impact as well. Where my paragraphs took intuitive leaps, she'd tell me that I'd lost her. Then I knew I had to take reader-sized steps, sequencing how I got to where I had leapt. Repeatedly, she called for examples that seasoned my conceptual sentences with experiences from the sensory, daily world. Even when I disagreed with a suggested change, I knew that I needed to make some kind of change at that point in order to connect stronger with my readers. I know that I am a better writer today than I was before I began working with Nikki."

"I am impressed with Nikki's talent for profiling individuals and projects. Her unique writing style consistently inspires interest to learn more."
"Nikki worked with me to craft an article about my personal coaching service for a local magazine. She did a great job in helping me write a piece that clearly reflected the points I wanted to make and was a superb editor all the way through. In addition to being a talented writer/editor, she is also a professional who sincerely cares about the work that she does and the clients she serves."
