“In 12 years as People magazine’s West Coast Bureau chief, I dispensed assignments to hundreds of correspondents. Through all that time, Susan Christian Goulding was a fixture on my short list of go-to performers.
“Tell Susan what you’re after and she delivers. On time, on point, with no need for hand holding or nudging. She is a personable, probing interviewer, a fluid writer and a versatile, careful reporter--a completely reliable pro.
“I recommend her without reservation.”
Former West Coast Bureau Chief
“I have worked with Susan Christian Goulding on several occasions and have found her a creative, thorough, professional, flexible and fun writer. Susan can write in a number of styles, from straight consumer-style reporting to conversational-style features.
“Susan always hits her deadlines and needs little editing. The rare times that I have asked Susan to reword something, she has proven very open to fitting her ideas to the needs of the publication and has made revisions swiftly. Her accuracy is impeccable. Other editors at the Register who have worked with Susan also find her an outstanding professional with a knack for writing in a smooth but unpretentious style. Her best work reads like an energetic chat with a smart friend.”
The Orange County Register
“In the seven-plus years I have worked with Susan Goulding, she has consistently demonstrated what a wonderfully talented writer she is and has exhibited the utmost professionalism. She’s been an absolute pleasure to work with.
“Her columns for the Daily Breeze features section have been witty, intelligently written and clean--they need virtually no editing. She writes about her life and family in a way that appeals to a wide range of reader demographics, always maintaining a freshness and timeliness to her articles. Pairing that with subtle humor is no easy task, but Susan manages to do it. She’s unafraid to tackle just about any subject.”
"The annual report, written by Susan Christian Goulding and photographed by Michael Goulding, will serve as a model for our future years and will undoubtedly help us in our fund-raising efforts. I would recommend their services to anyone."
