Client Testimonials


“I refer to Rebecca as my book midwife. I had been working on a draft in fits and starts for nearly eight years prior to meeting her. In the course of six short, focused, productive and tiring months I found myself with a completed draft ready for submissions. Rebecca helped immensely in my accomplishment of that goal. She provided direction when and where I got stuck, feedback to clarify and refine the quality and cohesiveness of my voice and my overall message. In short, not unlike the midwife who helped me birth my 2 small children, I could not have completed this process without her insightful and nurturing wisdom and perspective.”

Rebecca is intuitive, talented, and extremely intelligent! She is an absolute pleasure to work with and makes everything seem effortless. Throughout the writing of my novel “The Billionaire: The Continuum,” Rebecca was not only attuned to the trajectory of where the story was going but was able to pull words out of me that made this project effortless and so much fun. I highly recommend her and will continue to work with her for many future projects to come.”

Rebecca transformed my book from a hodge podge of disjointed blog posts and podcast interviews into something I was proud to publish. I repeatedly experienced consistent, meticulous, high quality care through her edits. She cares deeply about her work, and it shows.”

“Rebecca is so fun and easy to work with! She gave me an outline for my book for me to customize according to my own message. It really helped keep me on track, and develop my ideas in ways that would be readable and marketable. She had great editing suggestions. I highly recommend her.”

“I use Rebecca for all my editing needs and have already referred several friends to her because the quality of her work is simply exceptional. I’ve used other editors in the past and nobody came close to the level of service she provides. You can see the dedication she has for her craft when you read through the review; Rebecca doesn’t simply focus on the grammatical aspect but also dives deep into flow and readability. When I need an exceptional editor, Rebecca is the first person that comes to mind.”

I started reading and couldn’t put it down until I finished. Rebecca’s writing immediately sucks you in and keeps you there. This book details the author’s journey to self discovery, and I found it completely relatable. Well done! I cannot wait to read more from you!

I loved this book, mainly for the author’s ability to share her journey and make you feel like you were right there with her. Or like you’re sitting in a cafe with your best friend sharing intimate details of your latest fears and desires. We all have these moments and most of us wish we had more of them. The author boldly puts herself out there – in her writing and in her life choices. I found this book to be inspiring as well as entertaining. And it made me want to dance!

The author does a fantastic job of telling her story of sexuality, personal growth, and spiritual discovery with vulnerability, humor, and insight. Her intimate, exposed storytelling and beautiful journey captured my attention from page 1, and proceeded to hold it through every page that followed. A fun read as well as an inspirational look at a journey that many women will relate to.

Superbly written, and full of useful insights about life, spiritual development, and sexuality. Although it’s written as a first-person journey, what the author shares are insights and bits of wisdom that are helpful to anyone who is on the path to higher levels of happiness.
