Testimonial

Karen took the clay I produced and shaped it into a clearly defined, succinct work that delivers its message in a fashion that everyone can understand. Working from a distance, with an unfamiliar topic, and with a wordy document, Karen identified the key words, thoughts, and critical concepts, and shaped them into a master’s thesis. She demonstrated a talent for explicating the heart of my work. I am indebted to her. (April 2002; Royal Roads University)

A user reading about nouns might jump to the simple subject, and from there to subordinate clauses — users are not required or even encouraged to use this material in order.”   HyperGrammar

Testimonial

I found Karen’s services to be prompt, professional, and helpful. Not only did she help me perfect my manual, but also I learned simple strategies to enhance my written documents using word processing programs. For business, I feel it prudent to ensure that all written information presents a professional and accurate image. We aren’t all wordsmiths. Thank goodness for people like Karen.
