"Alison has been tremendously supportive and helpful to me and other fellow writers. I've never seen her stumped yet, no matter what the problem, and she never gives up until she solves it. She's helped me out many times, including adapting my book covers to fit my email signature, with posters for reading events, graphics to accompany blog stories, and advice on how to utilize the technical options of social media. And all with a smile!"

"Alison is an excellent writer and editor for all forms of content. In editing, she is able to quickly assimilate the material, be it scientific, business, environmental, or whatever topic. She has a great range of knowledge which also helps in her writing and editing. Alison is very detail oriented, at the same time understands the content from a higher level context when she edits. Her writing is highly illustrative and allows the reader to truly understand the messages, in both subtle and overt forms. Alison is the first person I think of when I need a writer/editor."
