“Chris is an outstanding consultant and editor. His contribution included facilitating the evolution of my initial idea into an outline and then an initial draft. Chris also coached me to enhance all of my major points and draw my readers’ attention to the key elements of my message. His wise council as I wrote my manuscript made the experience delightful and helped me to take my manuscript to the next level. If you are writing a book, I encourage you to have Chris by your side.”

--Dr. Marta Wilson PhD, Author of Energized Enterprise, Founder and CEO of Transformational Systems

I help you to find YOUR VOICE and the core idea that distinguishes you and what you do from anyone else in your field or on the planet for that matter.

I was kicked out of more places than most people ever get into as a tabloid reporter and PEOPLE Magazine writer. But then I gave up life in the limelight to tell the stories of those that found their inner light.  As the author of five inspirational books and as an editor and book consultant helping others to write over a dozen other books, I have devoted my life, my skills and my energy to making a difference with the power of words.

As a developmental editor/partner for almost ten years now with private clients and through my role as a book doctor/editor-at-large for Greenleaf Books, I have prided myself on helping authors find their voice and their most powerful ability to inspire. That is partly because of my years of literary experience but also because of my gift for understanding people, the way they think and how they work, so to maximize their potential and their potential product.

“We both are grateful to our editor, Chris Bengue, for encouraging and supporting us, but mostly, for understanding and committing to the purpose of our work and showing us how to bring that calling to the world as writers and story-tellers.” 


--JBarry Kaplan and Jeff Manchester - Authors of The Power of Vulnerability: How to Create a Team of Leaders by Shifting INward

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​For busy high level executives who have visionary ideas,

an amazing track record of accomplishments and the authority to tell their story.

“When Chris and I first discussed this work, I recognized his talent. What I grew to appreciate however is his ability to bring out the genuine life story that is in each of us.”

--Barry Banther, Best-Selling Author of A Leader’s Gift: How to Earn the Right to Be Followed

TESTIMONIALS

​​“I knew nothing about being an author or really how to properly write a book.  Chris has guided me, counseled me, and, many times, just listened to me rant about the process.  From the beginnings in my first book to this book, Chris has always been there.  So, when you get to the meat of the book and if things sound just a little bit better, it is because Chris pushed me 5% More, but, more importantly, he gave more and made this book what it is today.”
