Service Description

I focus on my strength: content writing, including blogs, website copy, press releases and email marketing. My writing is very conversational in nature--I've had many people who've read my book tell me that it seems as though I'm talking to them. The clients I've garnered love this writing style and I've subsequently developed long-term relationships with them.

I was born, raised and educated in America. I will get the job done on time and to your absolute satisfaction.
