  "Nancy Johanson is one of the most creative and dedicated communications professionals that I have ever had the opportunity to work with.  While I was the CEO of a medical information company, Nancy was my "right hand partner" in formulating communications with our customers and business partners . . . a very challenging task, in light of the esoteric terminology involved in a fashion that grabs the reader's attention and effectively engages him or her in the content.   This comes from both her considerable depth of creative talent and her empathy for people and concern that they receive the very best of her efforts.  Nancy's attention to detail and commitment to meeting deadlines are also  valuable assets.  I highly recommend her as a top level professional."   -Mark Collins, Managing Director & Vice President, Korn/Ferry International

  "Nancy was a key member of our team, to successfully create a first-class financial guide for employees and company founders.  She put the finishing touches on our manuscript and was superbly professional in her advice and guidance."  -Nathan L. Reneau, Merrill-Lynch Broker, Austin, Texas, Co-author of Understanding Employee Stock Options, Rule 144 and Concentrated Stock Position Strategies, Writer's Club Press

  "Nancy has an uncanny ability to simplify the complex and express the thoughts of others in the written word.  She was a master at style, clarity, grammar, and richness in all of the work she did for me over a five-year period."  -Bill Daniel, Senior Vice President, Products, Vignette Corporation

 "Nancy Johanson is a dedicated and professional individual with very high standards in whatever services she provides. She clearly has the talent, experience, and skill in the field of copyediting and copywriting. But most importantly, her integrity and credibility positions her as one of the very best in her field of expertise I have come across. Although I live in Australia, I travel worldwide in my work, which involves training salespeople in international corporations and Fortune 500 companies. I searched everywhere for the best to assist me with my book, and I thank God that I found Nancy. For those who would like their written work to go from merely good to excellent, I highly recommend her professional services. Life is too short to settle of second-class writing, especially when it has a profound effect on others' perceptions of your own expertise." —Juri Yoshida (Author, Increasing Sales Through Relationship Marketing,)

Reasons you could use a highly qualified freelance copy editor:

  • You don't have a full-time staff editor, current staff lack the required skills and time to write or edit . . . and time means money!

  • Well-written, concise documents will be read!

  • Written documents reflect the image and quality of your company personnel, products or services.

  • Professionally produced company documents can increase profits!

  • Carelessly written documents cost your company in repeat customers and respect.

  • Great documents aren't just written . . . they're rewritten!

Reading is a means of thinking with another person's mind;
it forces you to stretch your own
. —Charles Scribner, Jr.

A good style should show no sign of effort. What is written should seem like a happy accident.  —W. Somerset Maugham

Word carpentry is like any other kind of carpentry. 
You must join your sentences smoothly
—Anatole France

Look at your work.  Look at mine.  Then call.
By the hour.  By the day.  By the job.  Whatever.
