    I am a storyteller. I am a writer. I learned to tell stories at my grandmother's knee and began writing as soon as I could print out sentences. My undergraduate college minor was English (as in literature and writing), and my undergraduate college major was theater arts/communication. I hold a master's degree in library and information science. My work experience (I am technically retired) has included waiting tables, washing dishes, carpenter's assistant, janitorial, library shelver, library children's associate, elementary school librarian, and am currently the librarian for a small, private college. I am a gardening and sustainable living enthusiast. I can sew well enough to make basic clothing and mend clothing. I knit, crochet, and am learning to tat. My primary language is English -- Midwestern USA flavor. I have been writing online since 2008 and have lately been doing a bit of editing.

    Hi! Welcome to my profile. Since you need a writer, allow me to introduce myself. I have written over twenty novels in various genres and am always looking for a new challenge. Although I am more comfortable with fiction, I have also worked as a copywriter. If you need it written, I'm the person for the job! I'm an effective ghostwriter and have signed several non-disclosure agreements. I work discreetly and pride myself on being able to capture a client's desired tone. I have worked on a number of different genres ranging from murder mystery to young adult dystopia. I also have editing experience and can correct errors in a manuscript without changing the flow of the story. In my experience, the key to a successful novel is a detailed plot outline. If you need someone to guide you through this stage of writing a novel or want someone to give helpful tips on how to enhance your story, feel free to pop me a message! During my time as a writer, I've also been asked to be a beta reader. Other writers have also asked me to help write blurbs for their books and provide reviews. I've always enjoyed reading, so this type of work appeals to me. The authors were generally pleased with my feedback since it was fair and respectful. I always try to preserve the essence of the story while I'm providing notes, and my main priority is to preserve the author's unique voice. My writing is always well researched and delivered on time. The overall tone of my work is upbeat and engaging although I have worked on several serious projects. I have worked with a number of clients and always received positive feedback. I keep things professional and believe in hard work and efficiency. I pride myself on having a good work ethic. My interests include learning more about the world around me, and I engage in part-time volunteer work that brings me into contact with many interesting people. I look forward to hearing from you!

    I am a published writer in the genres of horror, young adult fiction and fantasy. I have sold over seven thousand copies of my last book, and have been contracted to write several short story series. Recently, I have been hired to ghostwrite many short stories in various genres of fiction, including romance, horror, sci-fi and more. I have also worked on several film scripts. When I'm not writing (which is rare), I teach middle and high school English Literature, as well as drama and film. I have a successful creative writing course in Cairo, and have helped several writers find their niches and develop their work. Furthermore, I have over seven years of experience as a journalist and editor, my articles appearing in several local publications. Despite the constant work flow, I always feel the need to keep writing and reading, and that's where ghostwriting comes in! Allow me to work on your project and provide you with more than just a story!

    Education Background: 2016 graduate from Saginaw Valley State University (MI) with a Bachelor's degree in creative writing and technical writing with a minor in gender studies. I received the honor of being named outstanding graduate in creative writing, as well as receiving two creative writing awards and a tutoring award during my time at the university. Work Background: I worked as a writing tutor in Saginaw Valley State University's writing center for three years (2013 thru 2016), offering university students guidance in writing from all fields, ranging from issues with grammar to clarity issues. I worked with students from many different backgrounds, including nonnative English speakers and nontraditional students. I also interned with Blue Thumb, a Saginaw, MI company that does digital advertising, as a technical writer, where I wrote content for websites, monitored social media, and edited content. Since joining Upwork, I have ghostwritten roughly twenty romance novels and novellas, none of which were rated lower than 3.5 stars on Amazon. I have also been doing editing work on both creative and business projects for clients both on and off Upwork for three years.

    As a passionate writer, I'm eager to get to grips with any subject. I love writing, and I enjoy the necessary research that goes into the work. I consider myself lucky to have a job that I feel truly passionate about. I'm a good researcher, and I always put 100% into any piece I write, regardless of length or subject. I run a blog, both for my own entertainment and as a portfolio, where I write about literature, post book reviews, and discuss mental health issues. I've been writing and working on my craft for years, and I particularly enjoy writing about different topics. I specialize in ghostwriting and copywriting, and I hugely enjoy both types of work. I look forward to new challenges.

    If you're looking for some good quality romance here is the right place! I specialize in contemporary romance, so I am well-versed in the genre and am familiar with the expectations and conventions associated with it. I have been writing for over 7 years now and there is nothing I haven't written about in the past – Fiction: Romance, Mystery, Thriller, Sci-fi, Fantasy, LGBT Romance etc. Non Fiction: E-books, blogs, Casino writing, CBD writing, Real estate writing, SEO articles, research papers, journal articles, tech articles, medical guides, travel guides… you name it! My storytelling is unique, undone, and known for depicting real life-like, believable scenarios extending across multiple genres, while relating to broader audiences. Victor has been quoted as saying, “For the past 20years, unknowingly, I had been cultivating myself in preparation for a personal harvest of films, books, and consumer products; having studied and analyzed content, people and how it translates to service, with a great appreciation for the art and science of it all. Imagine planting a seed in a fruitful soil that is bare—leaving it with an adequate supply of water and sunshine to last almost four decades. What has sprouted, is a direct comparison to what flows from my brain all day long. I am open to almost any project work, long or short term, and would be more than pleased to create a longterm partnerships. Please do contact me if you do not find a relevant sample of my work, as I am most happy to provide paid samples to suit.

    Hi everyone! I am a romance ghostwriter who has been writing for five years, but only a few of those are on Upwork! I have written 100+ novels. Many have made the top 100, top 50, and top 20 on Amazon. My favorite romances to write are dark, edgy, forbidden, a bit twisted, with a good anti-hero. I am highly experienced in every subgenre of romance, but I do not write regency/historical. Invitations regarding Regency and Historical will be declined. Something fun about me, other than typical work, is that I love crowd surfing. I'm a risk-taker! -Romance Author -International Best Selling Ghostwriter -Published Poet -Novels -Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Thanks for checking me out! Amanda 🖤
