If you want superior quality and someone who'll go the extra mile - then I'm your person. I am a highly motivated professional freelancer and have been self employed for over 4 years. I only apply on jobs I feel confident I can accomplish to the needs of the business/client. My commitment is to provide my clients with excellent quality in a timely manner. Due to this, I will only take on writing about topics I know enough about to write about competently. Since I am a stay at home mom, I am also able to work at any time of the day.

As Long As My Niches Love Me Part of being a freelancer is knowing a little bit about everything, and a lot about some things. My niches are pretty negotiable, so I would rather list the only topics I won't write about: I will not write sports. I will not write gambling or casino. I will not write forex or finance. I will not write penile enhancement. Why not these topics? I just don't. Sorry! Drop Me A Line! Now you know all about me, and what I can offer you. There is only one thing left to do: PM me!
