LION Magazine, Lions Clubs International

“Cliff has written feature stories for us for six years. He’s adept at understanding what the story is and producing lively copy that keeps you reading to the end. He knows how to connect with sources, drawing them out and coming up with good quotes. You get a very good sense of the people he profiles, as if you’ve known them or someone like them for a while. He doesn’t resort to being clever nor cute but nonetheless delivers a story with flair and zing.”

-- Jay Copp, senior editor

“Pat – that story is just spectacular. I am putting it up tomorrow. On my first read, I couldn’t find one place to edit it. (Unbelievable for me…) Thank you so much for your great work!!!”

-- Lissa Wyman, editor/publisher

Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association

”I just returned from vacation to see the article in last week’s Tribune about Indy and White River State Park by Cliff Terry. Thanks so much for the wonderful coverage. The Terrys were delightful to ‘host’. It’s rare that journalists don’t ask for the moon and the sun. While they are not ‘supposed’ to accept freebies, many do. Pat and Cliff did not — they paid for their own hotel and were very ethical. On top of that, they actually walked much of the city on their own. While I contributed factual information, they didn’t rely on that alone and believe it or not, explored to see for themselves! I hate to say it, but that’s a rarity! “

-- Kimberly Harms, director, public & media relations, The Children’s Museum, Indianapolis

INSIGHT magazine, Illinois CPA Society

“Pat is an indefatigable reporter and superb writer. When we worked together I knew I could briefly explain what I was looking for in an article and rest assured that Pat would deliver on time and brilliantly. She is a creative writer who always has a great wealth of article ideas behind her.”

-- Julia Winn, former editor/publisher; current communications strategist

“Pat Terry wrote several feature stories for me while I was Real Estate Editor for the Chicago Sun-Times. She consistently delivered high quality work on deadline at a very reasonable cost. She commandeers a subject with zest and creates with enthusiasm. Hire Pat – she’s great!”

-- Sally Duros, former real estate/home life editor
