I greatly enjoyed working one-to-one with Scott on my book I'll Never Marry a Farmer. He showed excellent instincts as a writer and editor, shaping my thoughts and ideas to truly express what I wanted to say.
He is a pleasure to work with, both personally and professionally.

Working with Scott is a joy. He is nothing short of amazing!
Kevin Taft; best-selling author; former leader, Alberta Liberals
The Derrick Club hired Scott to write a sixteen-page information pamphlet explaining a proposed $3,200,000 expansion of the Club to our members.
Scott helped us turn a mass of data into a lively, concise and persuasive document. He quickly grasped our requirements, and hit exactly the right tone with his first draft. Even under a tight deadline, Scott was always cooperative and pleasant to deal with.
Needless to say, our shareholders approved the proposal, and the Derrick now boasts much improved facilities. Scott's work was the backbone of our communication plan. I happily recommend Scott.
Jan Novotny; General Manager; Derrick Golf and Winter Club
Scott does everything well, from content to language accuracy. He has an excellent sense of how to engage readers in both fiction and non-fiction pieces. When I ask him to do an assignment, I know he'll deliver what I need. He "gets it" in a way that I wish all writers could.
Lynn Zwicky; Editor; Duval House Publishing
Our book project involved over 90 authors (all professors), plus an organizing committee. Could there be a more daunting task for an editor?
Scott proved perceptive and sensitive to each author's intentions and feelings. He edited where appropriate, but did not over-edit. Throughout the process he remained amicable, patient and diplomatic.
It's hard to imagine how we could have done it without him!

Oh, in case I forgot to mention... you are a miracle.
