Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $50

I have been supporting myself as a freelancer since 2000. I'm a successful working writer, not a "hobby writer"- an established, full-time writing and editing professional. (Most of my work is independent, not through Elance).

I am author of four published books (one is a Canadian best-seller). My feature articles have been published in magazines around the world, and in newspapers ranging from The Vancouver Sun (Canada) to The Guardian (UK). In 2012 one of my short stories was short-listed in the Gloria Vanderbilt/Exile Fiction...

Service Description

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

I completed my sciences training (B.Sc. Hons. 1987; Ph.D. 1992) and worked as an exploration geologist until 2000. Throughout that time, I used my writing and photography skills to produce numerous technical reports and articles, and translated reports from English to Spanish and Spanish to English.

I left geology in 2000, and have been working full-time as a freelancer (both photography and writing) since then. Around 2005, I turned my focus increasingly towards creative writing, including short and long fiction, creative non-fiction, and screenwriting, and I recently completed my M.F.A. in Creative Writing at U.B.C. (2012).

Specific services that I work to high standards include:

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.

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,...
