WHAT AUTHORS SAY
Rev. Regina C. Hall, MA, LPC
When Naomi and I began working on my book, "Mommy I Need You!", it was in a state of disarray. I sought her professionalism to assist me in constructing my sentences and organizing my thoughts. Nai and I spent countless hours grueling over word choices and sentence structure. I thought the process would never end, but Naomi by my side helped me to push forward. Her expertise, dedication and commitment brought my story to life. I could not have done it without her.
