Today is not the only time when I am filled with gratitude for the trust a large number of authors have invested in me in working with them through their manuscript drafts – whether the task involved copy-editing or substantial editing. I am grateful beyond words. And then, when an author reaches out to express to me her / his appreciation of the work involved and the ensuing product, my gratitude is sky-high. Below, you will find the names of some of the authors I have successfully worked with. The titles of their precious writings follow their names. Please, bear with me while I “brag about” my professional dedication and commitment, but most of all, my labor of love toward the completion of each of these remarkable books. In front of you, dear reader, I wholeheartedly thank each of the authors whose names appear below for entrusting me with their creative writings.

[Please note: The list has been compiled in random order. As for the different genres, the titles represent a large variety which includes poetry, novel, memoir, prose poetry, single autobiography and a collection of autobiographical essays. My own literary work that has undergone my editing scrutiny has not been included here.]
