I’m enjoying working with Colette and appreciate the fact that she is only an email away. Good relevant comments, an eye for detail, and I like that she reads my work as a writer herself. Very happy working with her.

Roger Clifford - Writer

I would like to thank Colette Duggan, who is a first-class professional, who kept me informed from start to finish guiding me through the whole process of editing and proofreading of my work. I’m delighted with the work she has provided for me, and indeed her help.
