"Marie is one of those people with whom I love to work! She's professional, incredibly smart and takes on each project, whether 80 words or 800 words with the same amount of vigour and focus. Over the last few years, Marie has contributed hundreds of articles to our various web directories - the articles are always polished, well researched and written with SEO principles in mind, which makes my job so much easier. In addition, she regularly contributes ideas and offers her own suggestions about what to write, which I have found invaluable as a business owner (with no background in writing). In short, she gets stuck in and lives up to her tagline - 'Write on Time. Write on Budget'.

warmly for the work that you did for IBBY SA to publicise our presence and
our events at the Cape Town Book Fair in June 2009...We were pleased to see
notices of our presence...and events. You succeeded in getting us interview
time on Nancy Richard's Otherwise slot on SAfm in a week when the pressure for
airtime was considerable. And then there is the Facebook group you set up for
us...[that includes] in its reach the Rev. Mpho Tutu in Toronto, 340ml musician

found Marie's work to be thorough, thoughtful and expansive, and she made
concerted efforts to publicise my work in as many avenues as possible. She has
a broad range of skills, both written and verbal, and knows the writing market
inside out; so much so that she is able to connect with people in places
one often thinks may be almost impossible. She is well-read, as publicists and
agents ought to be, and considerate in her dealings with people, putting
her presence above those who slumber in thwarted uncertainty. Marie always has
a plan ...and her plan always works."

fabric from which all books are created. As author, I needed
encouragement and a supportive space in which I could reflect and bounce

expertise in the creation of my book, Career? Sorted! Her assistance was

MAGAZINE FEATURE WRITING
"Marie Rocher writes regularly for FAIRLADY
magazine – and we’ll
keep her on board for as long as she’s willing to contribute. In a
budget-conscious environment, we certainly don’t begrudge this spend! She is
the consummate professional. Her articles are of exceptional quality:
beautifully and tightly written, well researched, topical, relevant, perfectly
structured. Her pitches are perfectly on point: she has clearly taken the time
to understand our approach. And the final product never disappoints – the
promise suggested in the pitch is fulfilled. Also, she delivers to her
deadlines – or before. It’s no doubt obvious from the preceding comments that
we’d give Marie an unqualified recommendation – even though we really wish we
could keep her all to ourselves!"
