Service Description

My strongest area is creative writing, and Elance places me in the top 5% of their creative writers. I have multiple published stories and many more works in progress. Therefore, I can be relied upon for fiction editing, ghostwriting, content writing, etc. My preferred genres are fantasy, science fiction, horror, and romance.

My freelance experience includes writing descriptions for products and apps. I will be especially interested in such jobs if they contain some sort of genre twist, so that my fiction-writing ability can enhance the quality of my work, or if they relate to gaming, one of my favorite hobbies.

I will gladly consider any editing or proofreading opportunities, whether it is for grammar or content.
