I am an American published author and proofreader. I am a former English teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and proofreading certificate. In 2009, LifeTips published my book "101 Vegetarian Eating & Living Tips." In 2010, Vook published my ebook "How to Please Your Man."
I believe a writer is not so much a wordsmith as a thinker and problem solver--words are just the medium. I have established myself as a critical thinker who is both creative and analytical.
My main areas of expertise are: nutrition, vegetarianism, natural health, sports nutrition, athletic training, law of attraction, exercise, poker, soapmaking, public speaking, debate, world religions/spirituality, social issues, metaphysics, and self-improvement.
WHAT MY CLIENTS HAVE SAID:
+ "When I read that Soap book it was like a religious experience. I sat there and watched it unfold... page after page, paragraph and image, captions, text, such a complicated subject. And you made it so clear and easy to understand...If the definition of writing is to be able to elicit that feeling in a reader...then you are a master. I'm not easily impressed lately, but today was such a different experience for me. I thank you for that." -Chuck R., EbookShadow.com
+ "The final project looks great. Thank you for your punctuality, follow through, and for your communication throughout this project. I don't know if Elance has a 'favorites' list, but you are on there now! I hope you'll be open to future writing projects." -Luis M., LuisMedrano-Live.com
+ "I love this ebook..." -R.B., StressFreeWithRichard.com
