    I bring 25 years of professional expertise to the sacred process of writing. I am a published author, academically-trained scholar, and executive manager in the nonprofit world. My passion, skill, and experience place me in a unique position to assist individual and organizational clients. I offer ghost writing, editing, and research. Resumes, cover letters, Personal Statements, bios (not Wikipedia), and LinkedIn profiles are my specialty areas. In September 2007, I founded Writing the World, LLC in the Colorado area, U.S.A. I revamped my organizational website and started a blog on Hope from History in November 2013. Beginning with one editing client, I have worked with an additional twelve individuals and groups. Throughout my schooling and career, my writing has been an asset. In the early part of my professional life as a social worker, I wrote newsletter articles for the organization. I continued this journalistic strand in almost every other organization. Graduate work further strengthened my writing along with honing my critical thinking and research capabilities. With this foundation, I became a published author in 2003. I have book reviews in scholarly journals, chapters in edited collections, numerous encyclopedia articles, and my forthcoming book from Swedenborg Foundation. Starting in the nonprofit world in 1993, I became a successful grant writer and project manager. At New Foundations Nonviolence Center (1993-2005), I rose from Development Director to Executive Director. I continued in the latter capacity at Colorado Women’s Agenda (2005-6) where I developed three new programs: Inclusiveness Initiative, Grassroots Organizing, and Internship Program. I provided grant writing and editorial skills to Greater Denver Interfaith Alliance (2007-10). I worked with two primary nonprofits through my business. With Votaw Colony Museum, Inc., I co-coordinated two-day public history events held in different locations in eastern Kansas (2006-11). I especially enjoyed my project management work at BlackPast.Org (2008-13) where I obtained photo permissions for the group’s online reference center and developed a new section on African American and African Diaspora Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) history.

    I am a native English speaker, with a PhD in Classics and Ancient History. My thesis examined the epigraphic representation of the Severan dynasty (AD 193-235). I have broad academic interests in the humanities, and especially history; previously I completed both a BA in History and Ancient History with study abroad (First Class) and and MA in Classics and Ancient History (Distinction). Academically, I have a range of interests, but specialise particularly in imperial roman history, and the city of Rome itself.

I have extensive experience of academic writing and proofreading covering a range of subjects developed over the course of my University career. I have been fortunate enough to have twice studied abroad, at the University College Utrecht in the Netherlands, where I studied a Liberal Arts and Science curriculum including political theory, literature, and art history, and at the British School at Rome, where I undertook an extended investigation of the imperial thermae as part of my Masters degree. My MA dissertation, concerning memory and cultural practices in Rome, was awarded the departmental prize. I have a basic level of proficiency in Spanish, Italian, French, and German, meaning that I am able to access a range of materials and evidence for any role. I have independently produced academic papers to present at conferences, including at Columbia University New York, the University of Edinburgh and Radboud University in the Netherlands.

    Ever since I was 12, and my best teacher Miss Thomas turned me on to "Demon Words" (intriguing, tricky vocabulary), I´ve been writing: countless stories (biographical, sports, travel) and creative content, as well as business reports, ad copy, résumés and cover letters that get people hired, along with promotional notes and press releases. I´ve created numerous motivational speeches and toasts. I revise company websites while I entertain followers with my blog. Every week, I meet tight deadlines--I spend 8 hours a month editing content for companies like Amazon Web Services. Living and working as a corporate consultant outside the USA for 30 years, I've helped executives with concise business communication, persuasive presentations, and editorials. I´ve been lucky enough to have visited 40 countries, 49 of the United States (can you guess which one's missing?), and attended nine consecutive World Cups. My blog started this way. What else have I successfully written? *A 100-page joke book for English learners in Taiwan (1997) *A 180-page Master´s thesis on how execs can improve their presentation skills, filled with exercises and testimonials (2007) *A blog on my international adventures (from 2008) *A sales brochure to help two great artists (my mother Barbara and sister Susan) sell their brilliant paintings around the world (2014) *Two popular courses: "Power Up Your Presentation Skills" and "Working with Americans" (including slides, workbook, and bibliography: 2012) *Business School-São Paulo´s "Executive English Program" (EEP) website (2007) *And tons of published eBooks What do you need to write? I can help you write it even better.

    A good translation is the one you do not recognize as such, and I am here to offer you this opportunity. I've been writing for almost all my life. I have perfected my knowledge of Italian thanks to my studies, the writing courses that I have followed and my work. I have a perfect command of my language that led me to write a novel, hundreds of stories and to work as a copywriter for an international company. I also have a good knowledge of English which allows me to translate from this language to my native language. I am fixed on the maniacal level on the correctness of the language in every aspect, so I am ideal for a proofreading job. Thanks to this (see my profile for more details on studies and work and for the tests I have taken on Upwork) I offer the services of: - Writer of Italian content - Proofreader of Italian texts - Translator from English to Italian - Transcription of Italian audio - Voiceover for Italian text I assure you that you will be satisfied! Please contact me to have a quote, since I'm very flexible, preferring a pleasant collaboration over time with my client to the initial profit.

    I have completed several proofreading tasks here on Upwork with a 100% success score. I have exemplary spelling and grammar skills and have a large vocabulary. I am further developing my skills by completing a proofreading course with The Proofreading Academy. I work quickly and accurately and am meticulous in my proofreading to ensure the work I publish is of the highest standard. I am a relatively new blogger but learning quickly has always been one of my strengths. I am currently focussing on writing content in the body positivity, self-love, mental health and (comfort) food genres. I have worked for 20 years in technical support, primarily in the accountancy software field. I have extensive experience writing knowledgebase articles and email content which provides users with quick solutions avoiding unnecessary calls into the business and improves efficiency. This frees up time for development and other business tasks. I am an avid reader and have a very solid understanding of grammar and sentence structure. Having read a great deal I also understand how writing should flow and can tell when it is not correct. I can rewrite any body of text so that it reads naturally in English as well as checking grammar to make it seem more polished and professional.

  • Shortlist and interview biography writers. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. Whose profiles and proposals stand out to you the most?

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of biography writer you need to complete your project. 

How much does it cost to hire a biography writer?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced biography writer may command higher fees but will also work faster, have more specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work consistently.
