It has been a pleasure working with Portland on our first book. Portland has an organized and professional approach to her work. Her ability to ask insightful questions and challenge us regularly for detail and supporting information around the subject matter has been an essential and valuable asset throughout this process. Her writing is deeply thoughtful and carefully constructed to convey factual information alongside personal stories and experiences. Portland is a great communicator and kept us informed at every step.Cecilia Dahl and Katherine Brand
Portland’s a fantastic ghostwriter. I needed an eBook for my business and knew I didn’t have the ability to do it myself. Portland did an amazing job coming up with the structure of the book, which I was clueless about. She interviewed some of my clients to fill the book with compelling stories and generally helped me get my message out there in a clear and easy-to-read way. She’s great to work with all the way around.Name & Book withheld due to confidentiality
I wanted to revise and update my popular self-study workbook and course “Quick Start to Kick Start Your Book,” but I could never seem to find the time to get it done. I hired Portland to edit it, as well as interview a few of my former clients and write their stories into the book as examples. As a writer myself, it was critical to me that those stories really sing. I knew Portland would do a great job because she knows how to interview people and get to the heart of their stories. Portland did a wonderful job. I loved the editing she did as well. I’m so proud of the new version of “Quick Start to Kick Start Your Book.” I highly recommend Portland’s writing and editing services.Lisa Tener
Portland brings to each story a genuine curiosity, an open mind, and a sharp investigative instinct. But what takes her coverage of wellness and mind-body healing to the next level is her willingness to be vulnerable, to immerse and expose herself in pursuit of the essence of a story. Whether she’s profiling a renowned spiritual teacher or practitioner, unpacking the complexities of an alternative health approach, or sharing her own experiences—or, frequently, all three at once—Portland has the rare ability to translate nuanced and intangible concepts in thoughtful, down-to-earth ways that intrigue skeptics, newbies, and insiders alike.Tresca Weinstein
