I will make sure you're satisfied with my work, or I'll die trying!

Need a daily blog? I have an inexhaustible ability to create content.

Need a ghost writer? Well, if you'll excuse me, then your haunt is over!

Need an editor? I love the Oxford comma and employ it regularly ! When you receive my final draft you know it will pass muster. If the editing process involves slaving over a style guide, or if it means parsing through a list of common English errors, then that's the price I intend to pay.

Service Description

I am a ghost writer, blogger, editor, pitch man, proposal composer and fiction writer. I can work within whatever niche you desire. I am in the top 5% of contractors for fiction writing.

I have written many proposals, both competitive and non-competitive, and I specialize in getting funding for nonprofits. I write fiction and memoir for magazines. I write on topics that include writing itself, history, the environment, the arts, and chess, among others. I have a great portfolio that I would love to show you. I have a master's degree, have been in the military, and a CV that makes me a polymath. I have edited government documents and can work the same charm on your manuscript. I am an excellent source of ideas for any blog you want to keep fresh. It is a violation of the TOS to ask a contractor for free work, but you can check out my portfolio or ask for more!
