Mindi is my top choice when selecting an editor because she is well-versed, thorough, and does well editing even the most complex content. I’ve been working with her for 6 months, but conversing for longer. 


We met with a client in June, and Mindi was professional and lovely. Most of my other editors have 20+ years of experience, and some still have areas for improvement. However, Mindi is skilled beyond her years, provides updates, delivers on time (usually early), is adaptable to any genre, and manages her time well. I’m always pleased with her work, and highly recommend her.

Mindi provided a line edit on my 80,000 word memoir and did a fantastic job! She was highly detailed and her comments demonstrated a thorough understanding of the CMS rules. I plan to use Mindi on future projects.

Mindi Machart, a brilliant editor, showed her patience with me and her dedication to the book by editing it three times, due to my incessant desire to change bits and pieces. I am extremely grateful for her advice and conscientious work—especially late one despairing Friday night for recovering all the edits I had lost.

Author of FracMan Conflicted and The Shale Controversy

I found Mindi through a mutual friend who had seen her work before and recommended her as an editor. Mindi edited about 10 blog posts for me. She was quick, precise, and very pleasant to work with. She explained each of her edit suggestions and gave me feedback on my work. She showed a true interest in me and my work and has such a happy spirit.


You can tell that Mindi not only edits because she is amazing at it and has a true gift for it, but also because she lives what she does. I will certainly be using her again and refer her to anyone looking for an editor. Thank you Mindi for all of your passion, hard work, and positive energy!

Mindi goes above and beyond. There will never be a project too big or too small for Mindi. From marketing research papers and websites to social media posts and emails, Mindi has been my go to girl for editing in both my personal and professional life for the past three years.


Mindi is deeply knowledgeable about a variety of subjects and is fearless when approaching any industry. Her unique ability to alternate between an editor's and the audience's perspective is crucial when I am trying to communicate out of the box solutions to complex issues. Mindi's comprehensive approach to editing allows her work product to be flawless.


I have been very pleased with Mindi's work product, creativity, promptness and communication. I highly recommend her for any project you may have.

I began working with Mindi Machart in February 2017. She has edited an 83,000 word novel for me and is currently editing my next project, which will be approximately 90,000 words when completed in May.

Mindi has proven herself to be consistent, knowledgeable, and very efficient in her editing style. I’m always pleased with the effort she puts into her work and feel I receive the best product. She is not only prompt but routinely finishes ahead of my time schedule.

I highly recommend Mindi. She will be an asset to any position she undertakes in the future.
