Wendy is by far the most talented colleague I have had the pleasure of working with. She assisted me on various projects for the Chicago Southland Chamber and created the Marketing Task Force, which added a new dimension to the marketing team. Because of Wendy's vision, the marketing strategies of the chamber leaped into a totally new direction. I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for perfection and creativity. She would be an asset and truly a great addition to your organization.
Deb Sedberry
Formerly Vice President MB Financial Bank and Board Member of the Chicago Southland Chamber of Commerce

I wish I could write like Wendy, especially her long copy. It always seems so natural, gets in the right sales points, and is simply fun to read. Plus, she is always motivated, upbeat, ready to take on new challenges, does her research, and completes the work when promised. Therefore, I can truly recommend Wendy for any type of writing assignment.
Larry Minsky
Marketing and Advertising Consultant and Contractor, Book Author, & College Professor

Wendy is one of those writers who just gets it. She has a unique way of getting to the heart of the matter and not just writing down facts, but sharing her insights. Wendy is dedicated to her craft and enjoys working with others. In other words, she is a real joy to be around. Truly a lovely person. If you're looking for a writer who can capture an audience's attention and hold it until the selling is done, you've come to the right lady.
Steve Dusenberry
Creative Director at Appaloosa Moose

I was fortunate to work with Wendy Lalli in her capacity as a content marketing writer. She is the best! She takes the time to listen to the client's needs and to perform thorough research for the content. She knows just the right tone to convey, too, and as a result her work is top-notch. If you have a business, you are well-served by letting her take this type of work off your plate so that you can focus on the business itself. I strongly recommend her!

Wendy always took the time to personally get to know each of her creative personnel and to understand the specific needs of her client accounts, which helped her to recommend the ideal person for each contract or permanent job. For example, she launched an innovative portfolio development workshop through Paladin, which I participated in, along with a dozen other copywriters and art directors wanting to hone their craft and enhance their books. Wendy's creative background, coupled with her recruiting-side experience, proved to be invaluable as she developed a winning curriculum and supervised each AD/CW team through engaging collaborative assignments. The result was a brilliant speculative advertising campaign that I was proud to showcase in my portfolio.

BioSpace hired Wendy to write a series of articles for our bi-monthly Inside Recruiter eNewsletter. She was given a topic and ran with it. She was very thorough in her research and looked for different angles from which to present new ideas for very common topics. Her articles were ALWAYS the most-read feature of the newsletter. I would recommend Wendy for any type of writing assignment. She gets the job done well, on-time and within budget.
Beth Dwyer
Director at MNI Targeted Media

Wendy was a pleasure to work with for many reasons: she has an engaging writing style that is both easy to read and informative; she is a strong interviewer who puts the interview subject at ease; and she never missed a deadline. For these reasons, I chose to work with Wendy over and over again and will continue to do so.

"Doug Lalli is an exceptional proofreader. In addition to the requisite "dotting the i's and crossing the t's," he brings a deep knowledge of the nuances of the English language and grammar that enhances the outcome of each and every project."

⁠ — Rachel O. Williams
Director of Content and Product Development
The Paige & Paxton Elementary STEM System

Words & Beyond, LLC is exemplary! Wendy and Doug do all my proofreading and write some of my marketing copy. Truly, their work is beyond words. I have complete confidence that I’ll be well taken care of no matter what the project. They have the experience, skill, and talent that turns everything into gold! And they are what excellent customer service used to be. They go out of their way to get the job done impeccably, on time, and in budget! If you’re in need of marketing and/or wordsmithing, do yourself a favor, go to Wendy and Doug. You’ll be happy you did.

Reviews for Doug Lalli’s novel Peter and Beth

A fast-paced novel, Peter and Beth immediately draws you in and holds your interest, from Peter's first meeting with his unconventional psychotherapist to the very end.
TCM Reviews

Doug Lalli [has written] this novel with great sensitivity and insight . . . Nothing should deter you from opening this book . . . and reading through to its surprising conclusion. A wonderful first novel!
Curled Up with a Good Book

Lalli's first novel is . . . relatively short, but it does not shortchange readers. It's easy to get caught up in Peter's quest.
Pioneer Press

Flawlessly constructed . . . This is storytelling at its best.
Rick Crawford
Author of A Pathway to Heaven

Intriguing . . . a MUST READ.
Bettie Corbin Tucker
IP Book Reviewer

A spare but powerful and deeply affecting novel. 
Michael James
Author of Cloud Gazing

Recommended for the quality of Lalli's writing and for his insight into the complexity of the human condition.
Midwest Book Review/Reviewer's Bookwatch

An introspective and illuminating novel with a voice and style all its own.
John Mella
Author of Transformations

Lalli skillfully develops his protagonist's search for meaning and direction.
Kirkus Reviews

Lalli promises us more novels, and that's something to look forward to.
