Service Description

I've been an online freelance writer for almost a decade, producing high quality content for networks like About.com and Suite101. I have articles published online for topics such as food and drink, adventure travel, hobbies, home renovation, religion, and freelance writing.

Besides online and content writing, I have print publishing experience as well. I have published one book, titled "Drawing the Three of Coins", which is a very niche book on opening a New Age business.

I have also contributed chapters to National Geographic's book, titled "Essential Visual History of World Mythology"

Recently, I have had 2 books published with Atlantic Publishing on organic livestock farming and dehydrating foods for storage. My current project is a similar print book on wilderness survival techniques.

I may not be part of a company, but you'll get nothing less than professional service and results. With a smaller workload, I am able to dedicate my full attention to your project, no matter how small.

You'll have no need to worry about Copyscape, as every word that I provide will be original as well as SEO tailored.
