Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $25

Writing and editing for me is as much a habit as it is an addiction, and I wish to share my joy with you. My first priority is to serve and entertain; I love using my skills to make my clients smile. My second is to make money.

I have loved books for as long as I can remember, and if I had to choose one thing to have on a deserted island, it would probably be a Nook or Kindle, preferably with Wi-Fi and batteries that run on air and solar.

Service Description

I worked as an editor at an international publishing house for 4 years before I left to start my own freelancing firm. At the publishing house, I edited school textbooks, and also did some proofreading. I also intermittently do editorial work for Kwani Trust, an organisation that promotes African writers.

My primary passion is writing, which I have done since I was twelve. I've had several poems published online, a radio play aired by the BBC, and my first novel is currently on sale at Amazon. I contribute regularly to several blogs and e-zines.
