Richard tackled a long manuscript that included numerous terms from Southeast Asian languages with meticulous dedication. He noted a number of infelicities and embarrassing repetitions – thus improving and refining my work enormously

Christopher Hale, non-fiction writer, producer and director

Richard is the consummate professional and an absolute joy to work with

Marisha Pink, author of Finding Arun
