    Insurance and Annuity Content Specialist

    United States - Portfolio: 74

    "Susan is an amazing writer, very fast, accurate, and reliable. She also knows the financial industry and its language, which is what we need. Thank you Susan!" "She is the insurance guru on Elance. You won't find anyone better..." "Susan exceeded all of my expectations! She is a professional and knows her subject matter. On time and on budget! I highly recommend her service to anyone looking for professional written material, especially in the financial / insurance field. I will use her again for my future projects." You are most likely here because you (or a client) is in need of training or marketing content - and writing for the insurance industry may not be your strong suit. That's ok - you're in the right place. While writing about insurance, annuities, and retirement plans may not keep everyone awake at night, it's something that I've done rather well for nearly 25 years - and I'd be happy to discuss how I can deliver similar results for you and your business, too.

    I love how words can describe everything you think, feel and do. I love to bring my readers to where I am, as if they're sitting across from me drinking tea and having a chat. When I write a content article, I want them to come away with useful knowledge. When I write for the realm of horror, I want my readers to feel every shiver and icy breath. When I write a poem, I want them to be moved either by the beautiful pictures the words paint, or if horror, the disturbing after effects it leaves .When I write an emotional short story, I want them to shed tears. I believe you are defined by the words you use. I am an organized and dedicated professional to my work which is my life's blood. I have an excellent work ethic and I won't be happy with my work until you are satisfied too! Give me a try, you won't be sorry you did!

    Eloquent Automotive technical researcher and writer

    South Africa

    I'm an Automotive Engineer turned Blogger. I've been the Ghostwriter on an exclusive, bespoke on Supercars, bikes & planes. Subsequent to the successful completion of this piece I've written articles on everything from "how to articles" around practical guides to carrying out repairs, to copy for performance workshops and sales outlets around the world. I've established a long-term research and writing relationship with a European company that facilitates seminars and workshops for OEM's and first tier industry suppliers. This has expanded to my own monthly column where I focus on current topical events and developments within the industry. I'm conscientious, an independent free thinker with the engineering discipline of logic and the ability to research difficult topics. I only write challenging articles and deliver on time. Examples of my work are available to all interested parties. Hope to hear from you Peter

    If you can dream it, I can weave it.

    South Africa - Portfolio: 3

    A creative writer by heart, a storyteller by choice. With words, I weave worlds. Creating landscapes, characters and images that lure you away from the mundane, make your heart pound a little faster and your breath hitch in anticipation. Be your hero a downtrodden slave, a dashing shape shifter, or a lost soul seeking revenge in a world filled with disloyalty (known to us as high school), their worlds become a reality.
