I look forward to bringing your vision into reality via the written word. What I love most about my 'job' is that whenever I take on a new project, I meet new people and learn new things. My writing style varies from concise, technical and informative to engaging, entertaining and creative. I am an educator by training, and bring 25 years of experience to the purpose to conveying your information to your audience using any approach that will get the job done.
Though I am communicative by nature, I am also comfortable working quite independently.
This says it all: "AWESOME experience! Easily the best provider I have ever used on Elance - or anywhere else. Conscientious, professional, perfectionist, harworking, goes above and beyond expectations, and all on budget and ahead of time... Shall I continue gushing?! If I could give her 6s instead of 5s, I would. I HIGHLY recommend Patty as an outstanding provider."
I write it all, research it all and transcribe it all. I will adhere to your style, or change it up. I have extensive experience creating and publishing non-fiction. I perform layout and design within Word and am not afraid to work on a tight deadline.
Customer service, as it is called, is critical. If you prefer a lot of back-and-forth communication I am happy to provide it, by whatever means is most convenient for you. I pay excrutiating attention to detail - I do the excrutiating and you get the perfect product.
