"I really appreciate you and your team and how smoothly this project went. Your writers were really terrific and [DWW associate] made sure that everything was in great condition when it came to me...This was probably the most successful course I have worked on for content development and management."

"Elena Mauceri has assembled a world-class team of publishing professionals that applies a unique and special combination of qualities to each project that they touch. Every one of them is truly outstanding. Their attention to every detail is a publisher's dream. Their creative, hands-on, problem-solving approach has helped us in so many ways -- from feature development to design to quality assurance to author management. When I hire Dynamic WordWorks, I can count on superior collaboration toward on-schedule project delivery and an end product that is built to win. I owe much of the success of my editorial portfolio to the efforts of these talented individuals."
Head of Higher Education Product Strategy
"My initial contact with Elena Mauceri was as developmental editor (DE) for my first textbook, Core Concepts in Pharmacology, Prentice-Hall. Being a novice to textbook publishing, I was unaware of the enormous number of details required to prepare manuscript and see it through to publication. In addition, I was more than a little apprehensive.
Elena was competent at accomplishing the thousands of details required of a DE for such a large, innovative project such as mine. More than that, she was a true teacher, always patient when explaining the various steps of the publishing process to me. She skillfully handled conflicts between authors, the publisher and the production house. She always maintained a positive “can do” attitude.
Since that first textbook, Elena proceeded to be the DE for my second work Pharmacology in Nursing: A Pathophysiologic Approach by Prentice-Hall, and the second editions of both of these textbooks. A large part of the success of these texts has been due to her competence and diligence. I look forward to working with Elena on future projects, should they arise."

"Elena Mauceri is an exceptional developmental editor. Her strong editing skills, her quick grasp of content, and her keen eye for detail helped us produce a highly readable book that flows logically and avoids redundancy. But Elena brings so much more than that to a project. She has the wonderful ability to offer suggestions and critique without offending and to stay calm and supportive even in high stress moments. If she joins your team, count your blessings!"
Patricia A. Ladewig, PhD
"For the last 6 years, Elena has been the developmental editor for two projects, Core Concepts in Pharmacology and Pharmacology for Nurses, A Pathophysiologic Approach. Both books are in publication with Pearson Education – Prentice Hall (two editions now for each book).
Elena has driven these projects and more. She has worked tirelessly and diligently with teams of authors, reviewers, editors, contributors, copy editors, etc. Our projects have been very aggressive in my opinion, and yet she seemingly handled the schedule without effort.
My experience with her has been very positive. She is very gifted in her business, very thorough in her work and largely responsible for the success of three books. I commend her for her diligent work!"
