NAPKIN NOTES

Make Lunch Meaningful, Life Will Follow

Garth Callaghan

HarperCollins


  • Optioned for film by Reese Witherspoon and New Line Cinema
  • Books for a Better Life Finalist
  • Translated into 11 languages


Below is a select list of books I have collaborated on over the past eight years. They have been New York Times bestsellers, optioned for film, and endorsed by countless luminaries such as Brene Brown, Mitch Albom, and Arianna Huffington. Each of these books holds as a special place in my heart and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to help their authors bring them to life.


"I would highly recommend Cindy's services to anyone, and I hope I get the chance to work with her again."



"Cindy was the best partner I could have asked for. She helped me birth the soul of this book with her brilliant brainstorming and amazing writing/editing talents."

"Cindy gave me critical insights into my own thoughts throughout the process, teaching me how to express my story in a way that I didn't imagine possible."


"I would be unfathomably lost in the process of creating a manuscript if it were not for Cindy's wisdom, guidance, prodding and collaboration."

"Writing a book can be an exhausting, lonely process. Having Cindy as a copilot as we worked through challenges, uncovered important stories, discovered the arc of the book, and journeyed together, was a joy."


"Cindy brought our story to life and gave each of our voices clarity and passion."

"Cindy is brilliant at shaping a message so it hits the heart of the reader. Her contribution to my book was invaluable."
