Reference from client in India, I wrote 100 articles for him:

Working with Cynthia was a great experience. Aside from being a gifted writer, she loves what she does, writing. In addition, she has a thing for doing it right. She is not the one to cut corners. I had provided her articles to be rewritten. My instructions were to simply rewrite the articles. However, Cynthia went above and beyond and researched every topic for hours to make sure what she wrote had substance and meaning far greater than the original article. Working with her was so easy that at times I felt we had worked together for years. I would recommend Cynthia for any project. Personally, Cynthia will be my first choice for all my future writing projects.

Best regards,


Reference from Gerdean (USA), I did editing of a large amount of written work she had done over a period of about 5 years.
