Service Description

I have been writing award-winning articles, technical documentation, and other documents for over 25 years. I am a sole-proprietor with the ability to pull in other top writers as needed. I also write back-of-the-book indexes.

I have over 25 years experience in journalism and writing in a wide variety of fields including technical documentation, data processing, education, social services, and religion. I have been published in top academic journals, numerous newspapers and magazines. My work is always carefully researched, well-written, and delivered on time. Creativity and originality are a hallmark of my writing style.

I have post-graduate training in technical writing and document preparation, publishing, editing. I also have a Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies and post-graduate studies in Vocational Counseling and Occupational Education.
