Helping our client convert hundreds of pages of text, countless speeches and riveting videos into an inspirational memoir was just the first step. The challenge: to revise his epic into a magnetic, highly salable work. “Dr. Starr added her unique and special touch to every chapter. She helped me more than anyone else on this ongoing odyssey, adventure. With all of the help, advice and editing, she has been an absolute Godsend. Since I have never engaged in an adventure like this before I really had no idea what to expect.” – Mike Turpen, former Attorney General of Colorado.
“Dr. Starr revised, restructured and transformed my manuscript into a beautiful children’s book. When all seemed right, she strove for an even higher level. She treated my book as a work of art, from the title, cover photo, choice of fonts to the presentation of interior pages. She urged me to take photographs and then spent countless hours preparing them for the book. Publication of Tales From a Tail Wagging Dog by Ethel Frances is a testimony to her energy and commitment.” – Marcia Miller
