Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $50

Best-selling author, established ghostwriter (non-fiction books and blogging in my clients' names) and successful internationally published freelancer since 2000. I'm a full-time working writer, not a "hobby writer" or someone submitting low bids on projects hoping to gain experience.

If you are looking for an experienced professional who can write what you want, meeting the highest standards and getting it right first time around, I can do that for you. I have great Elance credentials. (Much of my work is independent, not through...

Service Description

I am a successful full-time professional freelancer (writer, photographer and broadcaster) with a diverse range of skills and experience.

I have two science degrees (B.Sc. Hons. 1987; Ph.D. 1992) as well as an MFA in Creative Writing (2012).

Specific services and areas of expertise are::

Research and technical writing:
Between my sciences background and my extensive experience as a published writer, I am an excellent researcher and a very organized report-writer. You can provide me with your research, give it to me and I will turn it into a complete article or report. Or you can simply give me your topic of interest, and I will do the research and compile a report for you.

Areas of special expertise:
Sciences, environment, indigenous culture, geology, health, nutrition, sports and exercise, finance, investing, real estate, translation from Spanish to English.

Editing of fiction and literary non-fiction:
If you want to make your own literary work the very best it will be, I will be a respectful but hard editor for you - from substantive structural editing (looking at major story elements such as structure, narrative arc, conflict, pacing) to lighter line-editing (wording, typos, etc.) - whatever you ask for.
I am not the kind of editor who will merely cross a few T's and tell you "Oh, it's good, you should publish it!" no matter what. If you hire me as an editor, I will be committed to heping you make your work the very best it can be - and that includes telling you...
