    Writing/editing expertise, client-focused, with the goal of the right end product at highest quality. Storytelling is my specialty. A keen eye for grammar, order, and clarity, along with a good sense of story, enables me to deliver artfully-crafted writing at a high quality. From humor to motivation to inspiration, from marketing materials to poetry to children's writing (^:9 , I love creating the right story. If you're writing your own story, allow me to help you perfect it through review and feedback, collaboration, editing, or proofreading. Please: NO homework NO romances (unless entirely wholesome) NO true ghostwriting. I ask no rights or royalties, only appropriate acknowledgement (by name) for my work (author, contributing writer, editor, collaborator). NO books over 35k words; 20k or fewer words preferred. SPECIALTIES: * Children's writing, fiction/nonfiction, rhymed/unrhymed (wholesome) * Review/critique, collaboration on, editing or proofreading of your own work * Adult writing, nonfiction informative or fiction (clean) * Inspirational/motivational writing * Technical Editing * Business communications and brand writing * Assistance with or editing of CV, application essay, bio, presentation, speech, memoir * Business communications and brand writing * Personal: obituary, eulogy, memorial, special occasion poems/speech (birthday, retirement, toast, etc.) ABOUT ME: With lifelong interest and varied experiences in writing, I offer my services for your writing or editing assignments. A keen eye for grammar, order, and clarity, along with a good sense of story, enables me to communicate precisely or correct or improve upon your written work. A native English speaker with a breadth of aptitudes, including writing and poetry, growing up, I majored in engineering at the University of Tennessee and enjoyed a career in computer programming with IBM before taking time away to raise my family. During my ten-year programming career I gained experience in writing user and operations materials, technical papers, and communications. During my children's growing-up years I did a variety of kinds of creative writing just for fun. Between my school and parenting years I won four different creative writing contests and was published in my college literary magazine. After hanging out my shingle with Upwork I began to do a considerable volume of children's writing, technical editing, and adult nonfiction books. In addition, for Upwork clients I've written poetry, blog posts, poetry in advertising jingles, song lyrics, and items of ESL and ELA curricula. In addition, I've provided ongoing editing for non-native English writers. Known for my painstaking attention to detail and persistent pursuit of excellence, I'm as well suited to the production of precise factual information as to the creation of artfully-crafted story and emotion. Areas of particular personal interest include: * Christian life and faith * children's writing - both fiction and nonfiction, rhymed and unrhymed * history * family and parenting * education and learning differences * English as a second language (eight years' teaching experience) * poetry - writing and editing * personal stories/family projects * technical / science / computer (editing and sometimes writing) * curriculum writing and editing - mathematics, computer programming, English * lyrics * business names and slogans, marketing communications * nature, outdoors * amateur photography, photo book making FEE STRUCTURE HOURLY RATE PREFERRED: I greatly appreciate clients who are willing to honor my conscientious work by arranging an hourly rate. Willing to negotiate, especially for a bigger job or repeat client. I log only actual work time. I do not log the time spent in communication during a project, and I try not to charge for reasonable revision. The following is a guide for fixed rates, when necessary. * Writing one children's story + one revision + one final edit 100 - 500 words: $125 (To produce a well-crafted story in few words takes much time.) 500 - 1000 words: $200 every additional 500 words - +$75 If we are contracting for multiple stories, some discount may be arranged. * Other writing Ten cents or more per word, depending on the project. Will I need to do research? Do I need to write from someone else's work, organizing and reworking it, etc.? What is expected in the way of revision/final editing? * Editing Proofing or Light copy editing: $15 per page Heavy copyediting / substantive editing: $25 per page Developmental editing: $10 per page

    At some point, someone will click on your blog, or read through your essay, or select your article. The key is to keep them reading -- and I can help you with that. My background in English has allowed me to develop my talents in technical writing, creative writing, and editing. I have been teaching these important skills to students of varying ages, all while continuing with my own writing. I have experience writing travel blogs, book reviews, creative pieces, and even educational curricula. I have extensive knowledge of various fields including lifestyle, travel, history, politics, and education trends. This being said, I am a keen researcher and take a great interest in learning. If you have a topic to be explored and turned into an article, I'm your girl! I will make sure to research, cite, and fact-check any information that I run across. Maybe you aren't looking for a writer but could use someone to edit, proofread, or beta-read your work. These jobs are also right up my alley. I have spent hours giving essay and project feedback, editing novels of aspiring writers, and proofreading resumes. I am skilled in Microsoft Word and Google Doc formats, which allows me to make sure your work looks crisp and neat. I am also fluent in Spanish, so don't hesitate if you need some translating done for that upcoming newsletter or business flyer. Having been a teacher in the past, I am used to a heavy workload. I have assisted students through multiple drafts and graded their final work. This means hours of thorough reading at a fast pace. If you have a piece for me to look over for proofreading or formatting, I am quick to get it done while maintaining its integrity. I have a passion for words and amplifying writers' voices. This is what pushed me through my education, throughout my work experience, and what drives me now. I am here to help your creations stand out and be remembered.

A telling of your tales that you’ve gotta get off your chest along with a gut feeling it will make a difference, somehow…is that how you feel? If you do, but feel you are too busy to write a book, let me show you how you can get it done…not in a couple of years, but in about four months. Yes, in four months you will have finally published the book you have been meaning to write all this time. Tick tock, look at the clock, time’s a-wasting. I SPECIALIZE in crafting "quick reads" that get great reviews because readers FINISH READING. "Who moved my cheese?" is still a mega best selling book: it's 80 pages! MANUSCRIPT REVIEWS: would you like a professional to review your current manuscript? We will meet to discuss your intention for your book then I will evaluate content based on your ideal reader and BIG PICTURE for yourself far beyond getting published. PUBLISHING CONSULTATIONS: my profile contains both 30 min & 60 min consultations to better serve the first-time writer needing help with manuscript, topic, message and self-publishing. PS I bring a lot to the table (beyond ghost writing memoirs) that will benefit you long after you are published. I will show you the ropes so you can avoid potholes, pitfalls and silly advice about writing a book – stuff that is keeping you stuck…yeah, that part. So you know... I have worked with dozens of first time, established, and even Wall Street Journal best selling authors. Be it non-fiction, memoirs, parables, creative non-fiction, or fantasy fiction, I am able to work with where you are, then take you where you want to be - often expanding your vision of possibility. My forte is taking all that content you have (audio, research, emails, and documents) then creating a cohesive flow for your message. A skilled interviewer, I hear more than you might think you have said, like mining gems you didn't realize you owned. From these, I will masterfully create the angles you need to stand above the rest in competitive markets. I work in tandem with a self-publishing giant and will escort you through the maze of publishing your e-book and/or paperback on Amazon, Kindle or Kindle Vella. SKILL SETS: CREATIVE & GHOST WRITING Working alongside a wordsmith means your content comes to life with vivid imagery, 'paintbrush words' and stories your readers will truly value. Maintaining the author's voice throughout is an integral part of our collaboration. EDITING (over 25 best sellers edited in last year alone) Developmental | Grammar & Punctuation | Interview to Book CONTENT STRATEGY Reach and speak to your avatar! Weave in your personal story, convey your message, and create an outstanding program with your BIG picture (the end game) in mind.

    I strategically shaped my educational experience to be broad, dynamic, and fluid, enabling me to take an equally inventive approach to my work. I understand the value of a first impression and strive to create a memorable and compelling project identity. I began my tenacious and driven road through college, starting with fine arts, which then led to an associate degree in biological sciences, and finally a BA in English. While my endeavors may seem far from cohesive, they are complementary tools that enhance the vision of any project through both a technical and artistic lens. My writing and editing skills can be focused on many different facets of the craft, including method development, technical writing & communication, nuclear security & non-proliferation narrative, marketing & promotional material, visual presentation, detailed research, and literary analysis. I also have a proven history of developing and maintaining strong client relationships; especially with international clients. I take pride in establishing an ethical and culturally respective rapport that reflects a diplomatic and politically neutral tone in all collaborations. Art prepared me to think visually and focus on elements that increase viewer focus and aesthetics. Biology fostered a curiosity in the natural world and equipped me with creative and persistent research skills, and English structured my artistry into a clear form of communication. I thrive on the quest for solutions that develop personal visions into well-organized, memorable, and compelling stories. ​

    Having trouble relating to your target audience? Worried you'll present yourself to the world but no one will understand? I specialize in making obscure, complex themes and topics simple, relatable and profound. I've spent hundreds of hours writing on Fringe topics most people would find unusual but now find relatable! For example, my first project on Upwork was applying the obscure and complex topic of Polyvagal Theory into a simple, relatable self-help book on stress relief.
