Service Description

Article Writing: I am accomplished in writing mainly how-to and informative articles but would really like to branch out. The topics I have focused on recently include parenting, relationships, teaching and training, travel, and money management. I produce quality articles quickly that contain perfect grammar and syntax. I am open to expanding upon my skills and would like to attain work that challenges my creativity and stretches my writing skills.

Editing: With years of experience as a writing teacher, I bring the unique flair of quickly assessing and repairing troubled writing. I'm an expert with grammar, word choice, spelling, and punctuation. I also have a natural talent for improving writing flow and will provide tremendous attention to detail to any project, large or small.

Ghostwriting: I am very interested in breaking into this field. My skills are such that I can provide a level of writing that matches your specifications. I can be witty, down-to-earth, conversational or more conventional and convincing. I enjoy working with individuals and take pride in collaboration that provides the best output for the project. I have an expanse of knowledge in several areas and aspire to delve into diverse writing styles and topics.

Various: I have over twenty years of experience in managing offices, schools, and talent. I am an expert at creating educational materials, performing research, data organization, and transcription.
