    “This was my first time working with a writer, and Gavin made the whole process comfortable and professional. He captured the whole essence of the story I wanted to have told. Gavin researched the information I shared with him, and then he wrapped it up in a concise storyline. The first draft he submitted was it. The other wonderful service Gavin offered was to proof read my website and rewrite certain areas of text. Now I feel my website is up to standard and polished. I would recommend, and I would be happy to work with him on future projects. Thanks Again.. [15 July, 2018] My first time hiring a freelance writer, and for my part a daunting task.. I chose Gavin at random and sent him my outline of ideas. The first draft he sent me of my story is all it took. It was amazing reading my story, feeling as though I had written it, because he had captured my essence in the story. He researched information I sent to him and he formulated something personal and wonderful. Gavin proof read my website and updated several pages of text. Hiring a writer and not knowing quite what to do, Gavin asked all the right questions and delivered something unique. Cheers!”
