Service Description

I had been a creative and ghost writer, editor and translator, 'part time' for more than 20 years while an employee in the corporate sector, now I am freelance and I create and write, proof and edit, FULL-TIME.

My proven successes lie in creative article (400 examples of researched SEO articles available) and ghost writing, where I require clear directions on the topic, the intended final format, the intended purpose and object as well as market, if applicable.

My other proven talent is the ability to proof read analytically, do research on statements and edit constructively. For a taste of that, read a chapter from the latest novel by renowned author Glenn Macaskil.

I am fully bi-lingual, the 2nd language being Afrikaans, used primarily in South Africa and am a registered translator with Transperfect International for that purpose.

Kindly read the 'Hors D'Oeuvres' essay, which will clarify my opinion and attitude towards "mercenary" writing from which I derive my income.
