Service Description

I generally tend to write informative pieces that teach the reader about a topic. I understand the importance of SEO and work at introducing it in a natural way that doesn't interrupt the flow of the article. I have written in a variety of formats, from instructional how-to, overviews, marketing/promo/product descriptions, website content and casual blog-posts -- crafted with the client's needs in mind. I have the expertise and ability and experience to write on a wide variety of topics in a range of writing styles. I also offer proofreading and editing services. I will offer a discount to volume work.

I have extensive personal experience in organic gardening, green living, vegetarian and vegan cooking/nutrition/recipes, pond care and natural health issues. I managed a health food store for five years and a pharmacy for five years. I am a certified professional herbalist and nutritionist, a consultant for organic gardening and pond design, and hold a degree in Art. I volunteer in local community gardening projects, animal rescue organizations, and have contributed to several vegetarian cookbooks.
