Jackie Dishner

I'm working on a few proposals related to Arizona history and travel. I"m also writing a book about accessing your inner joy--100+ ways--using vignettes from everyday life to show readers how it's possible, even in the midst of turbulent times. It's about awareness.

years experience: 20+

“I retained Jackie as a consultant to help me with my latest book proposal. Jackie came up with some great, creative ideas that hadn't occurred to me when I was writing my proposal. She also helped me focus the message, develop a chapter outline and work out a strategy for submitting my work. Jackie is great and fun to work with and although she is quite busy all of the time, delivers work on deadline.”

“I recently hired Jackie to edit my first e-book. Although I had spent a great deal of time creating the book, and enlisted the help of my colleagues to review it and make suggestions, it just didn’t feel 'finished.' I wanted to make sure the quality of book reflected my high personal standards as a business coach. Working with Jackie made this not only possible, but also extremely enjoyable. Jackie made valuable suggestions that allowed more of my personality and energy to shine through while providing a clearer, more targeted message to the reader. She encouraged me to keep moving forward (as an entrepreneur, I can be easily distracted), reassured me and made me laugh. In many ways, she was my coach as well as my editor. I HIGHLY recommend Jackie as both an editor and a writer. Check out her blog at

“Jackie is the perfect [person] to have on your team, as she's a dream to work with. Engaging, professional, and just plain nice. I love her quick laugh and can-do attitude."
~Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt

“Jackie is a talented, prolific writer that is a joy to work with. She is always pitching new ideas and stories and is open to work on or expand something that isn't her idea! That's a refreshing change. Jackie contributes to a myriad outlets and is experienced in writing on so many different topics that she'll tackle anything. She's fearless, competent, and productive; a rare and precious combination. I look forward to working with Jackie again!”
