Our clients in their own words
Maria Dismondy, Award-Winning, Bestselling Children’s Book Author, Founder of Making Spirits Bright: One Book at a Time, Public Speaker, Consultant http://mariadismondy.com/ “I have two award-winning children's books because of working with Kathy Hiatt! I had the pleasure of working on several manuscripts with Kathy, and her experience being employed in the publishing industry was helpful in bringing my stories to life. With Kathy’s supportive editing, the content of my story was refined and perfected. As a result, Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun, became a bestseller and is now a musical. I highly recommend aspiring and established writers to work with Kathy.”
Patty OBrien Novak, Engineering Educator at Renaissance Homeschool Group, author of Engineering the ABC’s: How Engineers Shape Our World http://www.engineeringtheabcs.com/ “I have had the pleasure of working with Kathy on several different projects - from a children's book to marketing materials to press releases. Kathy helped me edit my very first e-book for teachers. She transitions quickly to new writing formats while still bringing in her amazing gift to draw your inner words out to the paper, or in this case, the screen! Kathy is phenomenal! She has a gift for bringing out the best words in anyone and any subject. Kathy is very personable and a joy to work with.”
Kathleen Chisholm McInerney, author of Timothy’s Glove http://www.timothysglove.com/ "I had the great privilege of working with Kathy as my initial editor on my children's book "Timothy's Glove." Kathy is an incredibly talented writer and beyond patient. She helped me take my story which I originally wrote my Freshman year at the University of Michigan for an English assignment to the next level. She helped me simplify and add until I brought my story full circle. I have the utmost respect for her as an editor, but more importantly as a person with integrity and talent in her own right. If you have the opportunity to work with her, take it! I feel blessed that I had the chance to work with her and my book was blessed to have her hand on it!"
Angelle Batten, Family Wellness Coach, aspiring author http://www.angellebatten.com/ “Hiring Kathy as an editor was a great decision. Not only did she help make my writing better, she helped make me better as a writer. With her knowledge and experience, she really understands how to ‘get in the head’ of my reader and make sure my message gets across in the most effective way while keeping my voice and style intact. It can be a little intimidating to have someone suggest changes in your writing when you are so invested in it, but Kathy in the ultimate professional and truly wants to make sure I shine as a writer. I would highly recommend Kathy and plan to work more with her myself!”
Laura Becker, author of The Wonder of a Summer Day “Working with Kathy Hiatt on my picture book manuscript has been a valuable experience for me. Kathy helped me with the overall flow and content of my story. I found her suggestions to be very helpful, especially when looking at the story from the reader’s perspective, use of appropriate voice and tense, wordiness, and how to grab the reader’s attention. She was very comfortable and easy to work with, and she responded to my project in a timely manner. Since the revision process is so important, I will continue to use Kathy for all my writing needs. With her expertise as a content editor, I feel more confident when submitting my work to publishers.”
Ephraim Weisstein, CEO and Founder, Schools for the Future http://www.schools4future.org/ “I worked with Stephanie for three years on my "Schools for the Future" small school rollout. She is extremely talented, a very quick study, and produces top level documents and proposals. Anyone looking for an excellent writer would be well-served to contact Stephanie. My highest recommendation!”
