Ellen worked with me on the substantive editing of my book on entrepreneurs. Her input on the structure and content was invaluable to me as an amateur writer. By forcing me to think through my arguments and stay focused on my topic, she helped me transform a draft manuscript into a completed, coherent book that I am proud to put my name on.

Expatriates in Emerging Markets: Ten Success Stories from Argentina


Ellen Hoffman edited several of my trade paperback books.  She was a superb editor.  She is excellent with words but more important she is logical and able to use the most effective way to present ideas.  I enjoyed our collaboration. She is someone you can count on.

After nearly twenty years as an investment advisor I felt I had something significant to say about what has happened in the financial markets recently. However, I was hesitant to put my thoughts to paper because I lacked confidence in my writing abilities. Ms. Hoffman made me comfortable that with her we could write an e-book for public consumption. She was an ideal writing coach and I am very pleased with the finished product. In fact, I am already working on my second e-book with her.

I have worked with Ellen on many professional writing projects over the last 8 years. These projects were both national and international in scope. I have found Ellen to be highly creative and collaborative, as well as very organized, resourceful and versatile.  She works quickly to meet deadlines, especially in high-pressure circumstances. I really appreciate her energy and optimism, and I recommend her highly.
