Service Description

I can take your needs, notes, or outlines, and turn them into a full-fledged story, novella, or novel. I will communicate with you as much as necessary to ensure that it is exactly what you want. If I am proofreading or editing your work, I will give you constructive criticism to help you achieve what you are after.

My projects have included novellas, short stories, poetry, research papers, essays, newsletter articles, and application documentation, to name a few. I have worked in genres ranging from young adult to fantasy/science fiction to romance or erotica, as well as non-fiction, transcription, and technical documentation.

I also have several years of experience in collating documents into regular monthly and annual reports, as well as archiving the information in them and making it accessible on demand. I have been trained in research, documentation, and producing specialized reports and other breakdowns of information as needed.

One of the highlights of my previous employment was being a member of the development team for Total Offender Management, a custom web-based database system intended for use by corrections facilities to manage their offender population. I have continued my involvement with the system as a quality assurance tester and documentation writer for the developer.
