Reviews


As the publisher of three regional publications I have the pleasure of meeting many writers with very different writing techniques. Mary Ann is not only extremely knowledgeable and precise, she also has an energetic flair that captivates and engages the reader. Mary Ann has an outstanding ability of taking even the most sterile of topics and making then interesting and entertaining. She is warm and inviting and a great pleasure to work with!

Mary Ann is extremely thorough whether it’s in her fact-finding mode or her organizational skills with large projects. She is a very talented writer with strong creative results. She meets deadlines and will go above and beyond to provide the best product.

Mary Ann’s work is distinguished by clarity, focus, and eloquence. She analyzes, persuades or tugs emotions, in tidy prose and clear words that flow like music. Client needs and deadlines are priorities. Reliability and professional results are trademarks.

If you want to work with someone who has the work ethic of 10 people, the writing skills of an accomplished journalist, and the grace and charm of a consummate professional, look no further than Mary Ann DeSantis. Mary Ann is a pro when it comes to framing an editorial project and delivering a feature well beyond expectations… and deadlines. It’s an honor to know and work with her.

Bonjour Mary Ann! Thanks a lot for your words. It is the best article written about Burgundy I have ever seen.
You translated everything in the wine maker language. If one day you come back, it would be a pleasure for me to welcome you in our
“belle Bourgogne.”

Mary Ann has the ability to combine practical requirements of a project with the creative inspiration necessary to produce optimal results with any project. Having Mary Ann as a writer provided me with the confidence that my goals would be achieved no matter what the project!

Mary Ann has the ability to get to the heart of a story – and to a person – and bring it home to the reader. Over the several years we worked together, she cheerfully accepted and successfully completed assignments that covered virtually every area of the newspaper industry. I can’t say enough for her writing skill and professionalism.
