Sandy Levey-Lunden, author of I Just Want Peace about Lynn Thompson, Professional Editor on Team

I am grateful for Lynn Thompson, my professional editor; I value your writing and editing skills, flexibility in moving the book forward on all levels, and patience in helping me stay focused. Your acceptance of our team is invaluable for our collaboration. You are meticulous and a pleasure to work with, and I am delighted by your quick wit, organization, and insight. Mutual connections brought us together again twelve years after you organized and attended my trainings in Canada. Your knowledge of The Power of Clearing process was so helpful in editing my book.


I Just Want Peace  is a #1 International Bestseller.

Interview of Sandy with Becky Norwood of Spotlight Publishing on Launch Day, Wednesday, July 27.  

For anyone wondering what it’s like to work with Lynn Thompson as an editor, writer, and collaborator, here are unsolicited, spontaneous testimonials from three of the numerous people on my team involved with preparing my book for publication.

—Sandy Levey-Lunden

Lynn, you were an absolute JOY to work with!!!! You show infinite patience and presence making me feel seen, heard, and valued! You have cultivated so much focus, but are always game to have fun! You are a super talented writer and diligent and detailed editor. Your awareness is unrivaled, yet you are unruffled. The way you honoured Sandy’s legacy and embraced every new person added to the team was phenomenal! Collaborating with you was a dream, we were so attuned, even over Zoom, it was like our minds merged in purpose and play-fullness! Knowing you is a true and beautiful Blessing! Brae! It’s so incredible what can be accomplished when a set of stellar communicators are led by a star like YOU, Lynn Thompson!!!!

—Kristi Birnie

A great tribute to you, Lynn. I concur with Kristi on how much infinite patience, presence, and passion you had for this book project throughout and how I felt seen and heard, grateful to learn some of the ins and outs of editing. I feel like a beginner’s mind in so many ways. Such attention to detail and making everything appear to be seamless, more fun, and just more than the sum of its parts that you tracked so well. It was a meaningful creative process that I secretly never wanted to end. But then we’d be denying the world of a great legacy book and to give Peace a better chance.

Congratulations, Sandy and Team Peace!

—Christina Ireland

I concur with everything Kristi said. You have shown infinite patience, Lynn, with all of us throwing in different edits, you have welcomed each and every one of us and responded with kindness.

You are an awesome editor and have been a profound help to Sandy and her legacy book.

Well done and thank you!

—Sue Reynard

Beyond her exceptional knowledge and application of what is needed, Lynn is an absolute delight to work with. From the beginning, I felt safe to hand over my ‘baby’ to her.
