"Jessica DuLong is one of the most talented writers I've ever met. Unbelievable researcher, brilliant writer, and most of all, a pleasure to work with. She will not only help you with her brilliant guidance and plain old commonsense, but her support and kindness will lower your blood pressure!"Kenneth P. Rosenberg, MD

"Jessica is a rock star. I have so much gratitude and respect for her work."Atoosa Rubenstein

"Jessica's editorial talent is the result of a miraculous combination: intelligence, empathy, organization, deep listening, curiosity, attention to detail, and psychology. Of course, she is also a powerful writer, capable of communicating her feedback with precision, and suggesting line edits that enhance clarity and meaning."Charlotte Bismuth

"Jessica DuLong did a stellar job of editing my manuscript for publication. This was no easy task since she had to quickly learn a new language—U.S. Tax Code—which some say is tougher than Sanskrit. Jessica was a master at deciphering hundreds of pages of complex material, making my explanations, advice, and warnings clear, readable, and usable. This made the book much less intimidating for readers. That's an amazing skill." —Ed Slott
