"I had the good fortune to work with Maurice Possley on the documentary film, At the Death House Door, a film inspired by the impressive and compelling investigative series Maury (and his colleague Steve Mills) wrote for the Chicago Tribune. That series made a strong case for the innocence of Carlos De Luna, a man who was executed in Texas years earlier. In the film, we were able to track that important investigation by Maury and he became a central presence in the film. Along the way, I got to know Maury and found him to not just be a brilliant journalist, but a highly principled one. He's also an all around great guy who's a pleasure to work with. What more could you want from a consultant?"

"Maurice Possley is one of the best investigative journalists in the nation, and one of the most thorough reporters I have ever met and known… Among Possley’s many other contributions to journalism, and to the law, is his dogged attention to the specifics of this larger story; his ability to take from the trend a single story that illustrates more than raw numbers just how prevalent the problem may be."

"Cathleen Falsani is a true gift to me. Her sensibilities and contributions to my creative projects always go above and beyond mere literary genius (which she absolutely has and is); Cathleen is wide open and awake to the always progressing Zeitgeist at the root. Cathleen breathes life and light on art and activism, and their roles played in fueling the unstoppable evolution of our collective consciousness as beings born to love and be loved. I will never stop calling on Cathleen. A true friend and the kindest of souls."
— Ben Eisner, director and producer, The Divine Comedy of Thomas Merton
"I was lost in the woods, working hard but getting nowhere on my first book. It wasn’t a matter of effort—I was working on the project for hours a day. Instead, my problem was clarity about what the book should say and the process of bringing it to market. Cathleen brought the insight of an experienced (and very talented) writer, but that’s not all. She also offered the guidance of a mentor, and the support of a friend. Sitting down and talking to Cathleen was the turning point that turned my idea into a product that was ultimately purchased by a publisher."

Finding God in the Waves: How I Lost My Faith and Found It Through Science (Penguin/Random House, September 2016)
"As any first-time author can tell you, the creative process can seem daunting, lonely and discouraging. I am an experienced speaker, newly entering the field of writing and I am so glad that I had Cathleen to help express and work through a lot of the fear and doubt that comes with the creative process. As an experienced author, she was able to speak from the heart about all of the things that trip us up when we try to create — whether a book, a talk, a blog or anything that is incubating within us. No matter what your medium, Cathleen will help you learn how to tell your story in a way that the world needs to hear.
