Tamara Forge was incredible in all areas, and knowing that a freelancer is able to inject the same enthusiasm and passion that we have for this project made progress exceptionally smooth. We are delighted with the work done and look forward to many more projects in the future, and would highly recommend Tamara!”

“Tamara is fantastic. First what caught our eye was her creative writing. However, there is much more to working with her than her talent. She is very professional, knowledgeable in her field, delightful to communicate with and strictly followed the schedule. This in my book meets all requirements of a professional and makes working with her not simply a breeze but a great experience. We couldn't be more happy with the short story Tamara wrote for us. It is so sweet, well written and inspiring. I strongly recommend her and will work int he future on more projects with Tamara.”

“Absolutely fantastic children's book writer and a dream to work with for my animal book series. Tamara is able to produce anything you ask for and does sufficient research to learn about the subject content which in this case was quite difficult and time consuming to learn about. Rhyming, stories you name it she can do it. For my first time at hiring on elance she will do edits with problem and is enthusiastic and puts in 100% i will definitely be hiring for the future books in the series!! Great job i am very happy and excited to work with Tamara again.”
