    T.C. Kelly

    Legal/academic/professional writer

    United States - 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 and occasionally served as a legal analyst. 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 Asia. Although I write fiction as a hobby, I supplement my income by doing a variety of contract writing, editing, and legal analysis. Most of clients have law-related websites, for which I produce blog posts, informative articles, FAQs, eBooks, and landing pages. 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. Finally, I draft and edit legal documents and briefs for attorneys. Since that work is more intense and demanding than writing articles for websites, I charge a higher hourly rate for work of that nature. 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 well-regarded legal/political blog. I am available part-time for freelance assignments only.

    Writer (Creative & Technical), Editor and Proofreader

    United States - 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.
