  Molecules of Emotion &
Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d

“Nancy Marriott is a rare find, a writer/editor with people skills! I could count on her for clear and concise communication, as well as brilliant insights and ideas for how to write my book. She met every deadline and was even ahead a few times. Thanks to her flexibility, we wrote Molecules of Emotion in just six months, using e-mail and phone interviews, and for our second book together, Everything You Need to Know…, she was with me at every stage, even helped write the proposal that got us our generous advance.”

The Practical New Age Thinker

“Nancy is an amazing editor who didn’t shy away from the challenge of taking a manuscript that lacked the necessary structure and fluidity to help me turn it into a book that I’m quite proud of. Her professionalism and interest in providing insight for the betterment of the work was extremely helpful as I continued to develop certain concepts and ideas throughout the course of working on this project with her. Nancy not only helped me shape the direction of the book, but is someone who quickly became a “trusted advisor, and that I would feel privileged to work with again.  I highly recommend working with her.”
