Service Description

If you need it written or edited, chances are at one time or another I've done it and can do it again. Here's what I've written: web content, online articles, marketing and sales support materials, press releases, book reviews, newsletters, software user manuals, hardware user manuals, white papers, business letters, internal procedural manuals, short fiction and poetry.
