As one of the few providers on Elance who has worked as an editor in a publishing house and whose own writing has been published by several houses, you can rest assured that any project you entrust with me will receive the highest quality work and attention. My writing and editing guidance carries the authority of many years' experience doing what it takes to get published and make successful sales.
I'm also an ex-small business owner (I owned and operated a retail game store for five years), an emergency medical technician, an active participant in community theater and music, an avid long-distance hiker, an environmentalist, and a vegetarian. I hold special knowledge in all these fields and can write about them with authority. Other areas of particular expertise include American and geopolitics, NGOs, pharmaceutical and bio-tech (I authored the first ISPE Facility of the Year Award submission ever to win in two categories), domestic and international media, and the Middle East.
Available services range from basic proofreading, to extensive manuscript shaping of the sort you would receive from an agent or publisher, to ghostwriting articles or books, to finding and managing a stable of writers for your website, and everything in between. I can help you develop and/or execute your project, write from your ideas and information, polish a nearly-finished work, or simply check your spelling and grammar.
I have written and edited nonfiction books, academic texts, PhD...
