    Why take chances with your writing project?

    Writing is a difficult and time consuming task. If not done properly, it can waste your time, money, and create a poor image of you or your organization. Don't allow inferior writing to tarnish your professional image.

    You're best at what you do—administrator, executive, manager, engineer, medical professional, scientist, educator, researcher, marketing professional, etc.

    Let me do what I do best—writing!

    I have experience writing articles, booklets, brochures, pamphlets business plans, curriculum, user manuals, and technical data—including corporate documentation from a company profile to company policy manuals.

    I can write your articles, research studies, booklets, books, brochures, e-books, fliers, newsletters, press releases, public relations and sales literature, web pages, and white papers.

    As your freelance writer, I offer you quality and experience, a fresh perspective, convenience and affordable, on-call service. Whether you need a small brochure or a company profile, a user’s guide or a technical manual, I can help.
