Service Description

Close to 20 years of experience in the journalism and public relations fields gives me the background to produce a variety of writing, ranging from in-depth feature articles and press releases to advertisements and full-sized books. My journalism background gives me the ability to perform effective interviews. Plus, after six years as a newspaper editor equates to excellent proofreading and editing skills.

Writing experience includes 60,000-word ebooks about technical writing, effective business writing, writing essentials, magazine article writing, a career as a dental office assistant, a career as a paralegal, and a career as a pharmacy technician. Blog writing topics include information about using wood heat, technical aspects of solar panel installations, details about concrete sealers, DIY how-to projects, aquarium supplies, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, search engine optimization (SEO), electrician training, social media marketing, branding, travel destinations, and B2B rentals.

I also have experience writing resumes, LinkedIn profiles and introduction letters.

Editing and proofreading experience ranges from full-size eBooks and a master's degree thesis to web page wording and press releases.

Crafting effective press releases, which are actually used and not thrown away, is another specialty in my repertoire. Press release topics include those for attorneys, a natural lawn care product, college scholarships, new websites, professional businesses, industrial...
