Overview

I have thirty years of writing and editing experience in the newspaper, radio, television and book publishing industries.

My (Elance tested) English and Creative Writing skills are in the top 5 and 10 percent, respectively, among the website’s Writing and Translation contractors.

Add to these a life long love for the English language and an inborn ease with the written word. What you get is writing that is top of the shelf. Clear, concise and credible. And on target and on time - every time!

Service Description

Being a good writer doesn't simply mean being able to string readable words and sentences together.

It's about making an impact. By knowing exactly what the reader wants and delivering it in an easy-to-read, comprehensive and persuasive manner.

This is what I have done over the past many years as a newspaper and magazine reporter, feature writer, editor, radio and television script writer and content provider.

Am also an award-winning poet and novelist.

What I offer you, my client, is writing that's:

* Original.
* Simple and direct.
* Wide ranging in its ability to handle both technical and non-technical topics and styles.
*Edited and fine-tuned to an exact degree.
*Backed by solid research.
*And as finicky about deadlines as you are!

Do go through my portfolio. Along with my resume, I have included a representative sample of my work over the years.

I take my work seriously. On Elance, that means YOUR work.

Ultimately, I'd rather let my writing speak for itself. So, go ahead, give me a try.

A little fresh air never hurt anybody!
