“It is a pleasure to work with you. Your work is always high quality and on time. Your personal style distinguishes your articles from those you find in all too many magazines. Our readers tell me they like your articles. Your input and recommendations are always constructive and right to the point. What else could one ask for?”

– Andreas Conze, Project Manager ARAB MEDICO magazine Quintessence Publishing, Berlin.
