"Where have you been all my writing life? You are able to take what I am trying to say and turn it into a perfect article that still reflects my words, but is said in a much better way. Working with you is a joy!"

— Joe Kort, Ph.D, MSW, MA, psychotherapist, coach and author 

"James made a significant difference to Jupiter Justice. He caught two plot errors that my beta readers and I all missed! He also strikes a solid balance between making suggestions and supporting the author's vision for his or her work. He helped me polish my novel, bringing it to a quality beyond what is seen with many traditional publishers today." 

– Don Hunt, author of the science-fiction mystery, Jupiter Justice


"James and I worked extraordinarily well together for nearly a year on my book, Speak Dolphin: Deciphering the Dolphin Code, developing a deep relationship through his excellent interviewing, writing, and editing skills. I am grateful that he enabled me to bring the story of my life's work and research to the printed page. I could not have done it without him, and I highly recommend him as an editor and ghostwriter."

— Jack Kassewitz, scientist, animal activist, and dolphin researcher  


"The excellent writing skills of James D. Townsend and his encouragement have made this book a reality. I am indebted to his grasp of the seriousness of the issue and my need and desire to tell how this tragedy took a turn into the unknown. I was never aware of any indecision on his part. When I had interruptions in the process, he was always there to get me back on track and he is the best. I thank him for everything."

— Nancy Wild, author of For Zacky:
Where Is the Accountability When a Child Drowns?

 
“James is a present and brilliant example of a man who understands the physical and spiritual realms in which we live. To work with an editor who understands both the written word and its derivation is a true gift. For anyone, including James, to have the patience to walk beside me all the way Back to the Starting Line of Life is a true blessing.”

– Patrick Detscher, Author of Life Unbolted:

A Journey Back to the Starting Line of Life



"James is as professional an editor as they come. I had worked with him in the past regarding articles and was impressed enough to try his skills on my new book. All I can say is I am happy I did! Not only is he thorough, he is not afraid to let you in on what can make the material shine even brighter. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with James again and I would confidently recommend his services to anyone looking to take their work to the next level!"
