We don’t like to toot our own horn.

We let others do it for us….

“Margaret is such a pleasure to work with – I wish I could take her everywhere with me! From a writer’s perspective as well as from the standpoint of someone in the media, she’s professional, thoughtful, creative, organized, and well connected – I can think of few people I’d recommend as wholeheartedly!”

~ Julie Van Rosendaal, DinnerWithJulie.com, co-author of Best of Bridge series

 


“If Margaret were a wine, she’d be the coveted 2000 Château Margaux: vintage expertise that uncorks a fresh perspective every time, nuanced and layered interpersonal skills, and a consistent producer of first-class, hard-to-obtain results. She stands alone in her field, and working with her is both an investment and a pleasure.

Margaret expertly managed the Vancouver publicity for my two books Red, Wine and Drunk All Over and Unquenchable. She was a professional, tenacious, and enthusiastic champion of my work. By drawing on her extensive media relations experience, Margaret was able to secure great media exposure for my books. She landed interviews for me with major newspapers and blogs as well as top-rated radio and television shows. I highly recommend Margaret, and yes, if she were a wine, she’d garner that rare score of 100 of 100 points.”

“Thank you, Margaret for the wonderful job you did on the launch of the Eat St. cookbook in the Vancouver area. Your efforts helped make it a bestseller!
