Service Description

I will write interesting and accurate content and articles for individuals and companies looking for skilled and passionate writer. As a weekly wedding columnist for a major newspaper, I am extremely experienced at presenting everyday events in a manner that is memorable and intriguing. And my investigative skills have been honed writing dozens of hard-hitting articles on such controversial topics as judicial misconduct, environmental issues, censorship and more. I also have a particular flare for writing about the arts, food and events in a way that is engaging and entertaining.

Whether you need someone to write a zesty column about the storied past and health benefits of nutmeg, a thoroughly investigated piece about the legal history of zoning laws, or merely want to add content to your website that will inform and entice, I am the writer for you.
