Writing The Right Way

Tanya is very professional and has a flair for being a part of the story.

With a failed marriage and a toddler at her feet, Barbara had resigned herself to a life of half-hearted attempts at romance and the commiserating company of priceless girlfriends and fine wine. She meanders through life until a chance meeting with a handsome guy in a ski lodge. A warm fire and an instant attraction to Michael and her universe shifts. Michael awakens something in Barbara she's never known. Life with Michael is more intoxicating than anything she experienced in the wilder side of her youth, and when he asks her to grow old with him, she eagerly slips the diamond of promise on her finger.


After interviewing several Editors, it was a no-brainer to pick Tanya. Her skills seemed far superior and they proved to be sky high above my expectations. Tanya is a wordsmith extraordinaire who breathed new life into my story! She is friendly, communicative and was always available for my questions. Bezuki Services is a great team! They were very professional and passionate with my story, and it now flows well for readers and has an eye-catching book cover. I feel blessed to have found this team!

Award Winning!  Honorable mention of the 2016 Southern California Book Festival on Non-Fiction.

As the local purveyor of fine coffee in the sleepy town of Edmonds,Washington, Madeline Morehouse was happily embarking on the second half of her life. Having recently emerged from a failed marriage, at forty-six she was ready to meet her future, and all its promise, head-on.

On a warm spring night in May of 1993, Allan Ray Chesnutt had other plans.

A stolen ladder and a three-story climb would put him in Madeline's bedroom where he would brutally rape her before attempting to rob her of the day's coffee-shop receipts that she kept in a locked file drawer. Chesnutt's determination to access the cash gave Madeline a chance to fish her handgun from her purse—and the tables were turned.

A call to 911 would have the Edmonds police at her door in under a minute to find her naked and bleeding, her gun pointed squarely on Chesnutt. The criminal was apprehended, but the damage was done.

Designated as a local hero for capturing the roving rapist who had been terrorizing the towns of Edmonds and Lynnwood, Madeline struggles with the aftermath of her ordeal, the unwanted celebrity, the fear that such a violent act could take place against her and the shift in both personal and family relationships.

Life as she knew it was over and the once promising future now seemed daunting—would she ever feel safe again?


Brilliant and caring editor! Great team! They get it all done and can do anything a writer needs, very user-friendly.

Thank you for referring me to Tanya!

Kevin E. Gallagher has spent over forty years litigating in courtrooms and has visited more than forty major and minor league baseball parks—some long gone. To him, both our justice system, as well as the game of baseball, embody similar paradoxes of the human condition; sorrow-joy, love-hate, excellence-incompetence, grudges-forgiveness. In his fourth novel, "Fields of Forgiveness", Gallagher draws on these life experiences, with generous dollops of playful satire, humor and surreal encounters with famous players from today—and long ago, all coming together in one place. Included are fictional adventures with Pete Rose, an early attempt to integrate the game and the author’s own encounters with Mickey Mantle, based loosely on real-life experience. The focus is forgiveness and the stories ask the questions as to how baseball should apply the virtue to some of its most storied players—one in particular. Pete Rose, Jackie Robinson, Cy Young, Mike Trout, Willie Mays, The Babe, The Mick, Yogi, Henry Aaron, Derek Jeter, Shoeless Joe, Barry Bonds, Ty Cobb—to name a few, all join to form this riveting, fun, playfully poignant and historically interesting collection of baseball lore.

Darryl's Reunion

Tanya made my novel come alive for the screen.
