    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Portfolio: 3

    I am a reliable, driven and highly skilled administrative professional committed to effective execution of clearly defined, time-based goals. I am a strong and analytical writer and communicator. I hold to 'old school' values where building a client-centric culture is concerned, while embracing new technology and out-of-the-box methods as a means to that end. I am most productive where creativity is applicable to the task (drafting reports, presentations, correspondence, etc.). Place me in an environment where continual learning is the norm - I will step up. And I'll be honest: entrepreneurs are my people, so it is likely that synergy will be best met within that arena. I am an achiever.

    Writer (Creative & Technical), Editor and Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 18 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    I would like to use my writing skills, both creative and technical, to their highest advantage. I have a great deal of experience in legal research and writing, which allows me to take many different types of technical and scientific data and make them understandable to the average person. This was a necessity for me as I also tried numerous cases before juries in both Florida and Georgia. It will also help me take such data and make it understandable to your readers. Presently, I primarily write and edit eBooks. I have written them on subjects ranging from legal to financial. I have also been working on a very ambitious training manual with foreign partners for the last year. I contribute content as well as do all of the English language editing. In addition, I have been hired to write everything from web content to short stories over the past few years. I am also a very creative writer. For myself, I write novels, short stories, and poetry. For others, I have written short stories, case studies, and a children's book. My English, language and grammar skills are exemplary and my research is always thorough. Finally, I'm a capable editor of both style and content.

    Legal/academic/professional writer

    United States - Last active: 13 hours ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I have a J.D. and a B.A. For many years I worked as an appellate attorney, practicing in both state and federal courts. I also practiced in the areas of criminal defense, employment law, and personal injury litigation. For several years, I was a part-time law school instructor of legal research and writing. I also did some part-time editing for a legal publication. While I maintain a mailing address in the United States, a few years ago I took an early retirement and moved overseas to pursue a more relaxing lifestyle. For most of the year, I live on a tropical island in the South Pacific where I work as a freelance writer, editor, and legal analyst. Although I write fiction as a hobby, I supplement my income by doing a variety of contract writing and editing. Most of clients have law-related websites, for which I produce blog posts, informative articles, FAQs, eBooks, and landing pages. I also write or assist in the preparation of legal documents and briefs. In addition, I have done academic and professional ghostwriting, including preparation of academic papers, website articles, and political position papers. On occasion I edit books for self-published authors. Among ongoing projects, I have a contract to write summaries of administrative law decisions for a trade association website and I regularly produce blog posts and articles for law-related websites. Although legal research and analysis is a specialty, I have a broad academic background in English literature, politics, and social sciences. My book blog is popular and I was once a front page writer for a popular political blog. I am available for freelance assignments only.
