    Go-To Pro-Writer

    United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

    My main objective as a writer is to provide clear, intriguing and detailed information to the world. I'm interested in most every subject, which means I'm very diverse. I have written non-fiction essays, papers and articles. I have also written, edited and published two fiction novels under the pen name Scarlet Clearwater. My favorite genres are sci-fi and erotica, however, I generally love to write anything, be it technical or creative. Currently, I'm writing a screenplay adapted from one of my novels. Professionally, I have experience in real estate, property management and law. I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies. I worked on oDesk last year for many hours, but due to a transfer in PCs, I lost my portfolio and had to start again. I hope this doesn't deter anyone from hiring me, as my work is top-notch.
