Service Description

Currently, I am employed as an IS support specialist with the City of St. Peters. In my position, I often perform technical writing duties. I am also actively pursuing a fiction writing career and have had success writing romance. However, I am looking for a second income to supplement my current salary.

I am a high self-motivated and self-directed worker. I enjoy challenge and look forward to learning from my experiences.

I'm an experienced, deadline-driven freelance writer with BA in Writing. I have over 10 years experience in technical writing, proofreading, creative writing, article writing and blogging. Services offered include creative writing, editing, proofreading, newsletters, short academic writing, article writing, and blogging. I will consider any project. For smaller jobs, I can promise a quick turnaround. Please contact me today for more information about the services I can provide.
