I am a first language English speaker and a published academic author who divides her time between Italy and the UAE. I am trying to make the decision to retire and move permanently to spend my time gardening and writing in Italy.
The contacts I have made through elance have all rated me highly and most have re-employed me or invited me to work for them again. Surely, there is no better recommendation.
I have had considerable international experience having worked in four countries over the last 20 years.
In a professional capacity as a university professor, I advise writers on all aspects of their writing: audience, purpose, voice, tone etc. In addition, I have edited academic and fictional materials. I have presented at international academic conferences and published academic papers.
I am efficient and reliable. I only work for two or three employers at a time, so you get an abundant measure of my attention when I write for you.
I love to create original materials for various different types of publications such as reviews or articles on gardening, food, travel, bridal wear, insurance, law and just about anything required. I enjoy creating informative and entertaining articles. I have also worked on making legal documents comprehensible to the lay person.
I can produce material for a variety of audiences in an informal or formal voice as required. What I deliver has met with success and all my clients have been fully satisfied.
I am very interested in food and travel as a lot of life revolves around these two preoccupations. For me gardening and food go together. Having lived for 15 years in a country where all the food has vast air miles attached to it and a lot of it is grown in such a way that it lacks taste, I have become passionate about accessing top quality, fresh ingredients. Mostly, that means growing my own in Italy. I grow, preserve, cook and eat with gusto for 3-5 months of the year in Umbria and I write regularly about this experience for my own accommodation website.
Challenge me with your task, and I will give you my best. I am a fast worker and respond quickly to feedback.
