I love my work and always meet or exceed the client's expectations. I consider it a privilege to be entrusted with someone's project.

Services

WRITING: I specialize in marketing copy and ghostwriting.

I ghostwrite books, blogs and articles, mainly in the areas of small business and self-help/personal development/spiritual growth.

I can update and revitalize old website content or create new, SEO-friendly content equally well. I've created content for a wide range of clients, in industries such as law, nonprofit, business, education, entertainment and health.

In addition to website content, I've written numerous blogs, articles, press releases, news and feature articles, reports, advertisements, blurbs, book and film reviews, brochures, sales emails, landing pages, white papers and product reviews.

I am also an experienced video and webinar scriptwriter, specializing in scripts that sell products and programs in the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

My writing experience is diverse. I've written articles about travel, lifestyle, the arts, parenting, home DIY and décor, meditation, personal development, education, weight loss, health and well-being, and business. I am also the author of a travel narrative about Belfast, Northern Ireland.

I easily adapt my writing style to whatever tone, style and content a particular project needs.
