Patti McKenna


Professional Writer and Editor

Combined with a creative imagination and impeccable grasp of the spoken and written word, she produces outstanding, quality copy.

Patti was a pleasure to work with. Not only is she a very gifted, high quality writer, but she was also professional and prompt.  I look forward to working with Patti again in the promotion of my music career.

I’ve found Patti McKenna to be the consummate professional. When we were working on our first project together, a book called “Killer Slides”, Graphics that Changed the World” (2006, LongTail Publishing), I found she took my coal-slogged ideas and polished them into pure gold. I’ve had the privilege of seeing work she’s done for some of the biggest names in the Motivational Speakers circuit as they were being developed. This is one of her core areas of writing brilliance matched only by her song lyrics. I observed these people’s precepts, the bones of which were only marginally conceived, beautifully rendered and fully fleshed out by Patti. She retained the core thoughts, but transmuted them into powerful prose, finely reasoned, with powerful delivery of that person’s message. This is a rare gift, worth a lot to us with ideas but who are lacking the powerful means of written conveyance.”

Patti’s my Go-To Girl!  Simply the BEST!

Gregory Scott Reid, CEO, WISH Entertainment, San Diego, California


When I was introduced to Patti by one of her clients, I didn’t know what to expect. What I got was a writer extraordinaire who also eliminated my need for an editor or a proofreader.  Her middle initial is “C”; I think it stands for ‘champion’!  Patti’s work is well known in my professional circle.  And the bonus—she’s a pleasure to work with, making me proud to call her my friend.

Ms. McKenna,

You have an impressive background and I must say, you are my mentor, as one day, I would be very happy if I have a tenth of your success (clearly, I have quite a bit of work ahead of me, though).

I look forward to reading more of your work and learning all I can from you.


Call me Patti. Thanks for your kind words. I visited your blog, and you can write! If you need advice or support, I’ll be happy to help if I can. Just send me a comment and we’ll email back and forth. Tip One: Your best writing comes forth when you speak in your own voice, instead of structuring your voice toward someone else’s style. Write about what moves you, just for fun. You’ll find that style and that’s where you’ll shine!
