Service Description

I can provide clients with top-notch materials that rival large agencies but for a lot less cash. In a nutshell, I can do what an agency does for less than you think, because I don't have the overhead an agency does.

I am a writer with more than 25 years of experience writing for different industries, including medical, legal, financial, construction, children's products, pet products and pet issues, psychological topics, health, wellness, nutrition and beauty. I write and/or produce Web sites and print materials, web content, social media. I run two marketing companies, one of which specifically works with authors. Once I help an individual write his/her book, I can take care of the marketing, too.

My professional background includes time spent as a magazine editor (of three different publications) and feature contributor as well as plenty of agency experience on the side of marketing and advertising. Over the past decade years, I have added PR to my list of abilities, placing articles for clients, finding them speaking gigs, and helping in their marketing and PR efforts through creating effective print and online materials. I can also help arrange events and get butts in the seats.
