"Marlene Martzke’s “Science Thursdays” has been inspirational and has drawn students to our classroom at Seattle Childrens Hospital. She designed this inventive program so that it can be modified to all age levels K-12, holding student interest as she builds understanding through multiple avenues, including hands-on activities. Our program has been greatly enhanced by this wonderful program!"

"Marlene wrote a fantastic article about me. I was very happy. She took the time to confirm facts and she treated me honorably and graciously. I was happy with how she wrote about me, and I was happy with the quality of the article she wrote.

“Our initial reservation was what we think about when we use any consultant: “Can we do this well-enough ourselves? Can we make the time to even try?” We would still be thinking about getting it done. 1LoneCrow set our expectations on the time for this project and then worked hard to get it done sooner than we expected. I would say that 1LoneCrow provides good copy ideas, meets your communication goals, and offers this at a fair price.”

"Marlene was a very effective editor: professional, delivered on time, and just what I needed. She did both line editing and copy-editing. With her light touch, she refined my language without changing the tone. I thank her and would work with her again. Highly recommended.
