“Ruth E. Thaler-Carter is adept not only at the craft of writing, but also at the business of freelancing. An active member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, she is always among the first to share her expertise with fellow freelancers in need of help or support. I have found her advice to be invaluable … I am new to freelancing as my serious, fulltime occupation, and your advice has been invaluable …”
Elaine Will Sparber, Editor/writer

"Loved your last release. Yep - nice clean and logical release. Usually I have to rewrite parts or my supervisor asks, "who the heck is writing these" - not a peep out of him for this one and he didn't change anything either! ")
Kimberly Taylor, NMA Publications Director
