Service Description

I have nearly 20 years of experience as a professional writer, proofreader, and editor with a firm grasp of English grammar and punctuation based on the Chicago Manual of Style and MLA standards. I am extremely experienced with proofreading and editing technical documents, textbooks, and software, especially training courseware.

I can ferret out grammatical errors and misspellings, turning vague or incoherent text into well organized, comprehensible, concise material, without losing the flavor and integrity of the original draft. Iím well organized and have worked remotely with individuals and team members for many years. I provide quick turnaround time on most projects.

Iím an avid blogger with experience at writing web copy for a variety of small businesses, so I can take the topic you supply and develop it into interesting and well constructed blogs or web pages.

I enjoy a variety of creative outlets, especially genealogy research, and I have maintained my own genealogy website for more than 15 years. Iíve also developed several other personal and client websites using both html and Wordpress responsive design. I can utilize child themes to customize the CSS, employ various plugins to create forms and sliders, and can migrate sites to new servers.

I am adept at various operating systems and software applications, especially Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Cloud, and Wordpress.

My services include writing, editing, proofreading, and blogging. I have an excellent...
