“Constance is a highly skilled writer and editor whose sense of humor and straightforward approach makes her a pleasure to work with. Her experience in a variety of publishing environments, from newspapers to major publishing houses, gives her the knowledge and flexibility to tackle any project with confidence. Constance and I first met as colleagues at Holt, Rinehart & Winston in the early 1990s, and we have remained close friends since.”

“When I wrote my first children's book Angry Garden it was basically an idea prior to Constance's constant input in editing. She was very patient with me throughout the process. Knowing I had not tackled such an endeavor previously she approached it in such a way that I felt like I had all the support I needed to make my story completely come together. As a person/friend, and as a colleague she has a very kind and supportive approach to everything she's involved in.
I highly recommend calling on her expertise. I couldn't have accomplished the final product of my project without her and I am sure she'll be able to assist anyone else with equal enthusiasm and perfection.”

“Constance Israel is a dedicated, hardworking editor and writer with a strong work ethic. Her grasp of grammar and sentence structure is unparalleled. As an editor, she knows how written content should progress from opening lead to conclusion and all paragraphs in between to make the content relevant, appropriate, and accessible for her target audience. She is an excellent hire.”
