[On raising two profoundly gifted children]
Rebecca Lange Hein

“Ron Kenner edited the manuscript and in the process became my writing teacher, mentor and friend…. In addition to doing a great job editing my book, [Ron] taught me to sense the content of my writing. I can now detect rough spots, changes in tone, and similar 'intangibles', plus I have a better intuitive feel for how to use words.”

[partial]____ Mike Croughan — Journal/Memoir

“Wheh! Reading your editing is an easy chore…. I can see instantly what you are suggesting to the writer! Your deletions are clear to me as are the additions. And I can clearly understand why you are making the suggestions you do. Moreover, I LIKE how you leave the tone and personality of the writer in place. It’s nice work.”

The Garbage People:
Story of Charles Manson

“You are left face to face with Charley — in his own words,” says the author of a spectacular new book on Charles Manson and his people. Ron Kenner, co-author with John Gilmore, adds: ‘People who have not learned to think, to recognize subtleties, who live without art and no awareness of subtleties must live by a sledgehammer approach to life…. The lesson of the Garbage People,” he adds, is: “Ask not how rotten Manson is but how he got that way. Ask not who ‘put the girls on’ but ‘who’s putting ME on?”
