Yes, I have to remind myself to talk #oldschool. I’m better on email — I mean, who doesn’t love receiving complimentary notes in their inbox? After all, you can’t save compliments for decades that came via phone. Through the years a handful of editors sent emails to me — on their own accord.

I’ve cherished every one and three are included here:


“Thank you for being so flexible on edits. Your starting point is always amazing!”

— Karen Schwarzkopf, Richmond Family Magazine, managing editor.


“I just edited your guide to Richmond — it’s great! I love your writing style.”

— Amanda Norcross, managing editor, Trip Advisor’s Richmond Family Magazine


“It’s perfect. Very nicely done. I’m impressed. Thanks for your care and skill.”

– Feature article on California celebrity and his family for Kidaround magazine; Joe Getty, co-host of the Armstrong & Getty Show, “The Voice of the West.”
