Service Description

Jeremy Nafziger works from home in Weyers Cave, Virginia. He got his job at his hometown newspaper when he wrote a letter to complain about a newspaper feature on his roommate. This led to sports stringing, and then to a full-time newsroom position, where he covered police and courts, local government, and a variety of other topics.

He left the newspaper when he got a grant to write fiction for one year. He has published short stories and is the proud owner of two-and-a-half unpublished novels. He continues to work on fiction and nonfiction essays in his spare time.

Jeremy has done technical writing since 1998, working as an editor and writer for several software companies. He was instrumental in writing processes, templates, and practices for several successful CMM and CMMI assessments at Levels 3 and 5. He has written style guides, design documents, requirements, user's guides, specifications, concept descriptions, and other lifecycle documentation.

Jeremy and his wife homeschool their four children. They try to keep a big garden and a bunch of chickens, two cats, and a long-haired German shepherd too.
