Creative Writer & Editor
Hello! It’s nice to meet you. To start you should know that I am a lover of the written word. By day I am a Librarian at Johns Hopkins University and at night I am a creative writer and editor here on Upwork. Due to my B.A. in English Literature and my M.S. in Library Science I am uniquely qualified to write and edit both academic text and works of fiction. I am currently ranked number one on Upwork for the creative writing test and I believe it is a testament to my attention to grammar, style, and structure in both my writing and editing.
In my creative writing, I focus on writing unique and thoughtful pieces of text. Many of my clients praise my mature writing and communication skills - I want to produce work for my clients that fits exactly what they were looking for. Much of the writing I do here on Upwork is romantic fiction and I am a lover of contemporary, paranormal, and sweet romances. I enjoy writing a “meet-cute” just as much as a ménage à trois! My books are character driven and I always provide a strong plot outline before I begin so you can be sure to know exactly what to expect from my final product.
When I edit for another author my skill set includes a fine eye for editing grammar and a knack for reshaping the text of a document while keeping the original author’s voice. I always focus on the goal of the author for whom I’m editing - I will help you create the best version of your project as possible. This means that I can do everything from light grammar checks all the way through rewriting and creative writing within your document.
As a Librarian I work mainly with graduate and doctoral students and faculty assisting them with research, research skills, academic citation, and presentations. At Johns Hopkins University I work with faculty and students in the following areas of study: Business, Education, Biotechnology, Museum Studies, and Engineering. I love working with such a diverse group of subjects as well as high level students because they give me such varied areas to research. No two research questions are ever the same!
I became a Librarian because I love to teach, I love to read, and I love to research. I'm an expert at both database research as well as standard internet searches. And you're just as likely to find me running them through my computer as my phone. I'm always one search away from the answer.
I love to read, write, and research. Here on Upwork I am looking to work for a set of varied and diverse clients. I find these tasks fulfilling in both my professional and personal life - and I would love to put my skills to work for you. Please refer to my portfolio for examples of writing I have done for Upwork clients or feel free to message me for more information. I’m always on the lookout for a new and interesting project!
