I first met Amy in 2007 when I started writing the Starry Views astrology column for Carpinteria's Coastal View News. Her rock-solid technical skills and natural grace made the process so fun and easy, she was my first choice as editor/proofreader/advisor when I started putting out books. Now I value her more than ever - can't imagine being in this process without her, actually. Thank you, thank you, Amy!

When finishing up my latest book, I found myself in need of an experienced proofreader. Fortunately, I was referred to Amy. I had my feelers out and had a few candidates, but I chose Amy because of her very professional email introduction and the way she kindly pointed out a missing word on my website. Those two things sold me on going with her. I was not disappointed. Amy proved to be easy to deal with, proactive and very conscientious. I was really impressed with her thoroughness and her commitment to deliver the best finished product possible. I consider her part of my team now and I’m looking forward to working with her on the next book. I highly recommend her services.

I’'ve known and worked with Amy for more than 10 years and always enjoyed her quick wit, smart turn of phrase, and no nonsense style when she’'s trying to get me to my point. In my newspaper days, I marveled at how fast and how funny she could be in creating headlines for the most inane council meetings or bizarre police reports. Whereas I’'m a visuals guy, Amy brings the word power. And she also has a good sense of which works best in the overall storytelling.

When it comes to unleashing a writer’'s full potential, Amy is second to none. She is positive and encouraging with a great eye for making a passage clear and concise while maintaining the individual expression of each writer. She has been invaluable to me in my writings.

We have been fortunate to have Amy serve on the Board of Catalyst for Cats as our publicity representative. With her writing and media relations talents, Amy secured our local nonprofit a feature story in a national magazine and ensures our name appears regularly in the local media outlets. There'’s no way we could afford to pay for the services Amy donates. We also appreciate her common sense approach.

Amy'’s writing has a large local following, and I am part of that crowd. I’'m also a big fan of the energy, creativity, and professionalism she brings to a project. Amy produces what is asked of her, and then some.

Amy'’s writing is exceptional, her latest travel book, Solvang: A Guide to the Danish Capital of America, is a bestseller at our store. She is goal oriented, keeps on task, and has a strong working knowledge of media and public relations. No matter how big or small the job is, with Amy, you can always be sure the outcome will be excellent.

I counted on Amy’'s attention to detail and thoroughness during animation'’s transition from film to digital. Her continuity work was invaluable. Amy performs well under pressure.

Through the years that I have worked with Amy Orozco in different capacities, I have been impressed with her consistent professional manner, her efficiency and quality of work. She works with her clients to verify the issue or assignment. Then she completes the task in a timely manner and does a thorough job of public relations with local newspaper and media outlets. When she taught a journaling class through our Teen Extrema program the students enjoyed it immensely. It is always a pleasure to work with Amy.
