"I hired Lynette Padwa to co-author my book, Becoming Ginger Rogers, after interviewing a number of potential writers. When she said that her goal was to make the process of writing my book as "joyful" as possible I knew she was the person I wanted to work with to bring my book to life. Lynette delivered on that promise and also against my stated goal that my book be "inspiring" above all. She delivered in spades against that goal, too. Whenever people tell me how much they love my book they always use the word "inspiring." I can't sing Lynette's praises highly enough. If you're seeking a co-author for your book, I recommend Lynette wholeheartedly and without reservation. Thank you, again, Lynette for my beautifully written book!"
