I’ve been impressed with Kristine’s ability on several levels–first, she’s an out of the box thinker that never turns in a story that is pedestrian, boring or something everyone else is running; second, she’s thorough and accurate. When as much stuff crosses your desk as does mine, number 2 is almost as important as number 1.

A pro gets it quick, gets it right and communicates it flawlessly and effectively. Kristine is a pro. Speeches, articles, news releases – writer and editor- she’s been there and done that – often when the task should have been marked impossible.

Kristine has gone over and above to provide me with great stories that are well researched, edited and written. She communicates well with me as the editor and provides the stories in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Kristine to other publications or for other writing sources.

Kristine Meldrum Denholm has written three excellent feature stories for Police Magazine. She pitches great ideas, executes them on time, and works with our editors to produce the finished product. She is thorough, reliable, and creative. I enjoy working with Kristine and would recommend her to other editors.

While Kristine has been a contributor to Balanced Living Magazine for some time, I just started to work with her on a one-to-one basis in the past couple months. During this time I am impressed with her creativity, idea generation, attention to detail and most important her ability to listen and draw more out about a particular topic or subject. Kristine submitted an article on the pressures faced by women who take preventative measures with breast cancer. I spoke with two of the people Kristine interviewed and both were completely impressed with her compassion, ease in questioning, and ability to connect on such a difficult topic. In my opinion, this is the best article we have published in the magazine – it is powerful and insightful.
Kristine takes great pride in her work and we are equally proud to have her contribute to the magazine. I strongly recommend Kristine for any project.

Ms. Denholm provided my publication with a prompt piece after we gave her short notice about our needs. The article needed no edits, and her submission met every guideline. I wish I had a stable of writers like her. Reliability and quality are a marvelous and infrequent combination these days, but Ms. Denholm provides them both.

Kristine has queried me with some great and original ideas for articles. The most recent was amicable divorce. She is thorough in her research, finding perfect sources, and hands in a clean manuscript that needs very little editing. She is always on time, and very professional. I’ll be happy to use her services as a writer again in the future.

Kristine interviewed me and wrote an excellent bio for me when I was auditioning for the Food Network. Not only did she write a biography that caught people’s attention, but her turnaround time was excellent. She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.

Kristine’s essay in Chocolate for a Teen’s Soul was poignant and touched many readers, as evidenced by the email she received afterwards. It needed barely any editing. She was professional, patient and responsible during the book process, and I enjoyed working with her.”

Kristine approached us with an article idea based on her experience editing an ATF newsletter. She easily adapted her original article to fit one of our publications and its specific audience – church newsletter editors.”
