Service Description

The key to engaging customers through SEO content isn't incorporating keywords. It's creating engaging, readable online content that compels people to read it all the way to the end. As an experienced freelance writer, I have published newspaper articles and blog posts for various style and beauty websites. Bringing a creative approach to the same topics that other websites are covering is nothing new for me. I am also the author of three non fiction books, published by Atlantic Publishing. For each of these books I was provided a short general description and I was then responsible for creating the outline and content. From finding a creative angle on provided keywords and topics to transcription or translation, I have extensive experience in delivering solid work in a timely manner. I am a native English speaker, fluent in French.
