“Master collaborator Ellen Daly, if ever I’ve seen genius at work, you are it. Your clarity in navigating where I was coming from and where I needed to go kept me on course.”

“Ellen did most of the heavy lifting on my book. Without her help, dedication, and superb writing skills, I doubt this book would have been half as good as it turned out to be.”

Cindy WigglesworthEllen Daly is a delight to work with. Her professional competence was crucial as we worked together on my book. And her ability to get into my creative process and help me say what I was thinking was uncanny! I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“Ellen was simply amazing. Without her significant effort and skill, my book might never have seen the light of day. She took a mess of blog posts and interviews, structured them into a coherent narrative, and guided me through the entire creative process. Her market-driven approach really appealed to me and kept the book focused on its target reader, and my publisher loved her work.”

She made the unimaginable a pleasurable journey of success!”

Mike M“I was so very fortunate to have been referred to Ellen Daly to assist me in writing my inspirational personal development book. As Ellen would send me each chapter, I was continuously amazed at how my stories, words, and concepts were written in such a beautiful way that truly inspired me, the person that had shared the stories and concepts. If no one ever reads this book besides me, it was greatly worth it because the words that Ellen wrote continue to inspire me to leave this planet in a little better shape than how I found it, at least in my little world.”


author of Love Unfiltered: Opening Your Heart to a Life of Purpose  (Next Century: 2014)

“Working with Ellen has not only been highly fruitful, but a profound and transformative experience as well. Her warmth, genuine care, and impeccable experience inspires a lot of confidence and will bring out the best in you if you do the work. She is extremely sharp and she delivers. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

(St Martin’s Press, June 2013.)



“I spent over three years writing the initial draft of my manuscript, and after all that time I was rather attached to it and felt considerable trepidation in seeking a writer who could help me with the material. However, I was immediately at ease once I met Ellen and we began to work on the project. Not only did she help me reorganize and improve the writing, but she brought it to another level altogether. And throughout the process she was an absolute pleasure to work with. I feel very strongly about her ability and integrity.”

(William Morrow, May 2013)

“Ellen’s support as my editor has far exceeded my expectations! She has a rare capacity to make the all-important connection between the intention behind a book and the words that express it. Even when that intention is not completely clear, she helps draw it out and find stylistic ways to help express it with power and clarity.”


acclaimed mentalist and founder of the Open Future Institute

“It would not have been possible for me to write my book without the amazing skill and talent of Ellen Daly.  With every favorable review I get, I remember and am grateful for her assistance.”
