News From the Home Office

Independence Day...When You Live in a Tourists' Town!

Four years ago, we left the relatively quiet and frozen tundra of Maine for the sunny shores of Florida. We haven't regretted our decision. We do miss the fall foliage but we use that as an excuse to escape to the Tennessee mountains for a couple of weeks each October.

Success Stories

Surprise! How a Private Online Compliment Turned into An Editing Job! By Stephanie Allen Crist

In the final year of my graduate Written Communications program, I was writing the first draft of my memoir about raising three children with autism. I worked the special education discussion groups on LinkedIn to build up my platform. In one of these discussions, a parent "expert" with a chip on his shoulder kept haranguing a guy with a doctorate - a real expert in special education. On a whim, I sent Dr. Lauer an encouraging private message. Little did I know what I was getting myself into!
