Here are what some of my clients have to say:

“Diana coached me on my first full-length book, and she was a dream to work with. She struck the perfect balance between being enthusiastically encouraging and offering constructive and helpful suggestions that made my book richer and better. I’m convinced I would not have finished the book without her expertise.” Minette Norman, The Boldly Inclusive Leader

“Diana is wonderful to work with. She is professional, personable, and meets every deadline. Our clients have had nothing but rave reviews of her work. I would not hesitate to recommend her!” Sara Kocek, Owner, Yellow Bird Editors

“Diana helped me, a first-time author, turn my rough manuscript into a polished memoir. She listened to my thoughts and ideas and then suggested the perfect way for me to structure my book. Her enthusiasm was contagious. Her help invaluable. Without her, this book would not exist.” Carmen Westberg, Dear Jeff

“I have enjoyed working with Diana over this past year. She can pull raw ideas from me, a reluctant writer, and turn them into polished, engaging stories. My experience has been nothing short of amazing.” Senator Thomas Mann, Jr., The Call to Serve

“I’m so grateful to have been introduced to Diana. Right from the start she put a lot of heart and soul into the book and had a real knack for zooming in on what was the essence of my story. My only regret is that I didn’t meet her sooner!” Cristy Elmendorp, Where the Light Begins

“Diana is one of the most skilled and versatile editors I know. As a senior editor at GBG, her brain seemed to be always on fire with new and innovative ideas. She has a great ability to look at a manuscript from a bird’s eye view and quickly determine what we can do to improve it. Her client communications are always professional, diplomatic, and kind, earning her rave reviews from many authors.” Carrie Jones, PMP, Director of Production, Greenleaf Book Group

“Diana, it has been a sincere pleasure working with you! You went above and beyond all my expectations! I would not have been able to have completed this book without your guidance, encouragement, and help every step of the way. There are not too many times that I meet someone who has my dedication, motivation, and work ethic, but you certainly encompass all three! I’m looking forward to working with you on my next book!” Michelle Seiler Tucker, Exit Rich!
