Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $44

Through decades of experience (military and civilian), I have learned how best to write for varying audiences, shaping my product to the desired context. It pleases me greatly to offer writing that is clean, polished, and on point according to the needs of the client.

If clients are satisfied with the outcomes of their commercially acquired writing, they will come back again. I believe this is the development of trust that leads to successful partnerships.

Service Description

Born in Illinois, raised in Arkansas, and educated all over, I am not new to professional writing. I have served in several positions for which writing was an adjunct to the performance of other services; now I can turn the tables and focus on writing as the primary service.

If you want quasi-legal content, know that I was a military verbatim court reporter (Army and Navy). I am familiar with religious terminology, having served in various pastorates for the last twenty-nine years. Time spent in Korea and Japan adds to my well of useful experience, and gives me a realistic view of the world.

I am ready to work directly with the world of words. I bring a few of my own.
