Ann Bolch has been a real asset to my organisation. She can turn her hand to all types of writing and editing, and does so enthusiastically, thoughtfully and in a timely manner. Ann listens to our needs and then goes off and does her thing … always coming back with something that utterly reflects Nova Employment. She does this in a friendly, compassionate and professional way. Oh, and she helped me write my first book! You can read about The Ten Demandments here.

As a personal trainer, I’m always thinking about how to get the best out of people. Ann’s gentle but unrelenting questioning, and engaging nature means she does this intuitively. Her advice on structure, flow and message guided the manuscript to become exactly the book I’d hoped for.I’ve had so much great feedback from people reading the book then making a commitment to change their lives for the better. I’m eternally grateful for Ann’s part in that. She’s a gem!

We were pleased to have Ann Bolch’s skills on board when we set up our Fernlea House Memoirs Program. As a writer, editor and interviewer, she knew exactly how to ask questions of our guests to get their memories rolling and their stories flowing. And she backed up these concrete skills with patience, compassion and an interest in people. Ann also trained other volunteers in the art of writing questions, creating a safe space to tell stories, and listening. She helped our volunteers learn the technical skills of recording, transcribing and editing the text. All this was done with respect for each person’s skills and experience. Ann’s professional and personal skills would be an asset to any individual or organisation wanting their story told.
