“I had a great experience working with Karen on the website copy for my nutrition coaching business. Even from the other side of the globe, it was easy to work with Karen. She brought forth great ideas for structure of the website menu, wrote great copy for each webpage, and for my business name and tagline. Karen also inspired confidence in me as I developed my business philosophy and focused on my specific audience. I highly recommend Karen to anyone seeking exceptional content for their business writings, especially in the health field.”

Her work exceeded expectation.”

“When Karen writes for or about you, she shows readers the integrity of who you are and conveys the essence of the work you are so passionate about bringing to the world. This was very important to me when I was looking for a writer to create promotional copy about my businesses. Karen delivers content on deadline and with her usual flare for clarity and creativity.”

“Karen writes from a position of knowledge and on-point perception both of her subject and her audience. She artfully combines attention to detail and the intuition of a good interviewer. Her studies of yoga and holistic modalities combined with her background in health psychology and exercise science make her an ideal person to write for holistic health organizations and practitioners.”
– Wendy Kolanz, Meditation & Yoga Instructor, Northeast Regional Director, Healing Institute of Beings – CA
“Many articles have been written about what I do, but few have been written with real care for the essence of who I am and what my business is all about. Because of the integrity that Karen brings to her work, I have hired her to ghostwrite and edit articles, book chapters and blog posts; compile research for my book proposal; and manage submissions to publishers. I recommend Karen to anyone who is looking for an extraordinary writer or writing coach.”

Karen delivered more than I expected and exactly what we needed. ”

“Karen M. Rider has a gift for listening to her clients needs and translating their ideas into written pieces that reflect the integrity of their work. I was impressed with the detail with which Karen approached the writing assignment I had for her. Her primary concern was that my article reflected the heart of my practice and the depth of my professional experience as a holistic nurse. She transformed my words into an enlightening and engaging “teaching piece” for other practitioners. I have received many inquiries since the article published.”
-Marie Menut, R.N., Holistic Nurse, Vibrational Sound Healing Practitioner – CT
“Karen’s coaching skills and her gift for intuitively knowing how to express what I want to say, enabled her to creatively and effectively develop the message I wanted for my first book, The Blood Type Cookbook: Easy, Healthy & Delicious Recipes for the Whole Family. From the beginning, Karen demonstrated her depth of knowledge, insight and clarity about how to turn a collection of recipes into a useful and engaging cookbook for my audience. She always thought about what would be best for the reader, making suggestions far beyond the writing aspect. Her publishing connections simplified the process of finding a book designer and getting the book to online stores. Karen delivered more than what was promised and exactly what I needed to successfully market this cookbook to my target audience.”
