Lee contacted me and offered to write a module on the details of developmental editing for my coaching program. I was so impressed with his organization, research, attention to detail and clarity of presentation. He clearly understands the subject matter. I definitely would recommend him.

Lee has a wonderful way with words. Lee also assisted me in rewriting a two-minute script regarding healthy eating and easy yoga for seniors, which will be turned into a video. A videographer told me that it was one of the best scripts he has ever seen.

Lee is a true "wordsmith" and is fearless in summoning his creativity and ‘outside of the box’ thinking. I am so impressed at his listening skills and his ability to translate what he hears into super content. Lee also had extraordinary turnaround on our project and did not consider the job finished until I was completely satisfied. I would recommend Lee for any writing project.

I admired Lee's dedication to 'tell it like it is,' and he was responsible for several articles on high school football that swept an entire community up with his coverage, establishing himself as one of the most balanced and honest writers (and people) that I've met. I'd definitely recommend Lee for any position that could leverage his strong writing and editing skills, innate creativity and desire to 'get the job done', as I've seen first hand how those skills and personality traits can made an invaluable impact.

I had a story to tell: My heart gave out and I was in a coma. Doctors told my family to say goodbye but I woke up after 16 days. And then I fully recovered in time to begin teaching the next semester. I needed someone to help me wade through all the details of the story: interviewing me, my friends, family members and doctors; parsing out the necessary and unnecessary details, and then constructing and telling the story in the most enlightening way possible. Lee did that and more. I couldn't have done this without him. The cross-country distance between us was never a problem. Thank you, Lee!

Lee was interested in "just the facts" (as all good journalists are); but he went above and beyond that. He was interested in the deeper story, the drama and trauma of the events and what they meant to real, living people. His interviews with me were thorough and, after speaking with him a few times, I began to see that he truly did care and really wanted to cover the story from all angles. His resultant article was accurate in reporting the facts, took care to consider the opinions and viewpoints of all involved, and was faithful in representing my quoted statements. … In short, Lee Barnathan is a journalist I trust.
Lee Barnathan was a great help in getting this book written and out the door on time and helped a lot with the storytelling and book organization. it was a lot of fun to work with him. He provided some great creative input. Look forward to working with him again.

Lee Barnathan is a “wordsman” superior. He sees words differently than most people, and you know when talking to him that he is processing your conversation and information. He is able to file it away very efficiently in his inner file cabinet, ready to call on it and use it when needed.

Lee is widely published in newspapers and magazines. He can speak to covering difficult situations -- crime scenes to city council meetings to sporting events that run late and push deadlines -- and how important it is to maintain your focus, your objectivity and your accuracy. He's a working journalist who can give real-world examples and draw on his experiences. ... Lee is an engaging professional. He's worked with me and for me, and I've long admired his accuracy, dedication and commitment to every project he's undertaken.

Whenever I know of someone who needs a ghostwriter, I immediately refer them to Lee. He has shown a great ability to recognize what a fascinating, unique, and compelling story looks like, and I trust him completely to be able to tell that story in the most captivating, original and remarkable way possible.

I contacted Lee at the recommendation of another colleague and former customer of Lee's. He analyzed the writing on my website and uncovered many opportunities to clarify my message for my target customer. His sharp eye even caught a date error in a video that had gone a lot of reviews. I hired him soon after, and he didn't disappoint. He was able to keep the heart of what was good and sharpen what needed improvement. The site has never read better.
