Overview

I am the author of three novels with HarperCollins London, translated into 4 languages (general fiction, 100000 to 150000 words); two of my books were best-sellers. I have also written a non-fiction book, now on submission to US publishers through an agent. I have also self-published an e-book through Kindle. I maintain and write two blogs which are regularly updated.

I am a native English speaker, but have lived in Germany for over 30 years, so Iím fluent in German and capable of good German-to-English translations.

Service Description

Less than 1% of all manuscript submissions actually get a publishing contract; and contracts with the Big Six are rarer yet. I made that cut. My three published books are all on amazon and goodreads with excellent reviews: the best proof that with me you'll be getting a true professional who can win over readers with captivating content and good writing. When you contact me I'll be happy to let you know the details.

I am ready and willing to write your blogs, articles and books for you, and can advise on the publishing and self-publishing process, both in trade publishing and in self-publishing through Kindle, Smashwords and Lulu. I can do editing and proof-reading, rewrite fiction and non-fiction books, and can advise on content.

I offer writing, editing and proofreading services for articles and books on
Yoga, meditation, spirituality, Eastern philosophy, diet and health as I have been deeply involved in these fields as practitioner and teacher for forty years; this means you'll be getting someone with authentic, expert knowledge on these subjects rather than a writer who needs to research them. The difference between the two? Heart, and conviction!

Please note: I joined Elance in 2009, but only completed my profile and started looking for writing jobs in February 2012, as I was working on long-term projects of my own. I am therefore technically a "new contractor", even though I haven't got the badge that says so!
