“We are always satisfied with Tom’s work. We initiate the concept and he runs with our ideas. We feel he’s worth every penny of our budget to provide compelling, professional, and concise writing that is highly interesting to our audience.”

Becky Ponder, Director of Communications, School of Social Work, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

 

“Tom knows how to bring the best out of an author. His ability to see the big picture while also tending to the small details helped my book tremendously. The end product is far better than it would have been without him. It was definitely money well spent on my part.”

Tim Hoerr, CEO, Serra Ventures
