Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $50

You will be hard pressed to find an established writer on Elance with a greater than 50% repeat rate. Mine has never been below 60%. Why?

Because I choose my projects carefully to make sure that they not only match my skills and abilities, but also so that I can find better, more effective, solutions to my clients' writing and marketing problems.

As a former academic with a Masters in Writing, I have both the intellectual rigor and the creative flexibility to handle most any project. I excel at problem solving and time sensitive research...
