Merel has been a freelance proofreader with us for over four years now and I am impressed with her eagerness to learn as she expands her publishing knowledge from proofreading to indexing and editing. Merel's careful eye and professional, friendly style make her a pleasure to work with.

Sue Custance, Publishing Director, New Society Publishers

Nice to come back to your fabulous work in my inbox. I've got it all, and all looks good. Thanks for putting together the author queries so nicely.

Merel has proven to be an invaluable editing resource. Merel was very helpful in arranging the order of my short stories and she was easy to work with.

Judy Roschlaub, writer

Working with Merel on the book Island Eats: Signature Chefs' Recipes from Vancouver Island and the Salish Sea was truly a pleasure. 

Not only does she have a keen eye for detail, but because she has prior experience as a chef here on the Island, she shares a very personal attachment to many of the local ingredients and recipes which make this book unique. She was a very valuable member of the editorial team.

Dawn Postnikoff, co-author Island Eats, Figure One Publishing

I will definitely let you know if we have another project that we need help with.

Jennifer Kuhtz, Production Manager, Page One Publishing Inc.

You did a careful and excellent job.

Royce Warren, author

I, too, wish to work together on future projects, I would not hesitate to sign you up! I’m glad you enjoyed the work, and it does make such a difference if the people on the team are smart, fun and respectful.
