~~WRITING~~

Article Writing
Busy readers need to be captivated in the first paragraph. Extensive research coupled with personal experience and an excellent command of the English language will produce articles your readers will love. Your specialty becomes my specialty.

Web Content
Years of experience in several fields of endeavor have helped me to appreciate what readers like and respond to and how to solve problems related to their research. Your blog posts, company information, or web articles can come back to you as raw copy or fully formatted for quick and easy posting.

Copywriting
Have your thoughts and ideas put into a richly-textured, reader-pleasing format that truly conveys your objective. From mission statements to product descriptions, my experience and expertise at thought-crafting can be put to work for you.

Sales Writing
Having spent many years in the sales industry, I understand the need for a compelling product description. Whether it's a flyer for a real estate listing, a promotional piece for a new restaurant in town, or and email drip-marketing campaign, I will ensure that your product or service receives the highest degree of professional attention.
