As I mentioned during our last conversation, your insight, direction, and patience were invaluable to me as I learned about the process and asked a seemingly endless number of questions. I have no doubt that you spent significantly more time guiding me through this process than you had planned, and I am grateful for your kindness and generosity. It is extraordinarily refreshing to work with someone who does what he says he will do, on time, without excuses or drama, and delivers a finished product as promised.

I loved the little fantasy elements that opened up amazing avenues in the book, with talking animals, talking books and all sorts of other delights. Highly recommended.
