The proof is in the pages.

“Some freelance writers fill pages with empty words. Maryann Hammers gives me the maximum meaning per word. She squeezes in punchy details and bright nuance when others fall back on tired passive or cliché construction. Hammers is a real writer’s writer, and she clearly loves her work.” — Willow B. Nero, editor, Military Officer magazine
