Greetings,

Fortunate to have come from a family of storytellers and teachers, I have been writing most of my life. I have experience writing letters, press-releases, copywriting, technical writing, product specifications and award-winning, creative writing.

I have written two books, many short stories and numerous poems. I have won awards for poetry and short stories, and was the first-ever winner of the Beaudelaire Prize, for which I was the unanimous choice of a panel of editors / judges. That entry was published, with no...

Service Description

I am a team of one. Therefore, I answer to no one, except you, my client, and I have no one else to blame, if you are not happy with my work. The good news is that I take immense pride in my work, and the advantage in being a team of one is I have total control over the work I produce.

What this means to you is that I can guarantee professionalism and a quality, finished product that will meet the needs of the job and produce optimum results. I will provide you with an exceptionally written assignment, in a timely manner.

Whatever the project, it is my habit to provide progress updates on a regular basis, offer you the opportunity to review the work, if you so choose, and make whatever modifications or changes you require. This may be scheduled on a weekly or semi-weekly basis, whichever is appropriate to the job and works best for you.

I will be accountable. I will keep my eyes on the end result and not lose focus. I will make myself available to you through My Elance, Elance private messages, email, chat, or telephone, whichever method works best for you.

We can make that determination, define project milestones and set a schedule when we have come to an agreement regarding the proposed project.

Whether our association becomes a business relationship of long-standing or is a one-time collaboration, it is my goal that it will be satisfying and rewarding for both of us.
