Service Description

I am interested in writing novels, novellas, memoirs, short stories and scripts. Following the outlines, descriptions or chapter breakdowns provided by the clients I use my writing skills and experience to bringing fresh characters to life, present them in unique settings, develop interesting subplots and exchange engaging dialogue.

I also stick to every deadline, providing each client status of their project a few times a week to ensure the writing is taking on the form they envisioned. I make small editorial changes along the way at the clients request but no major rewriting or editing is done during this first draft stage.
