    Traditionally Published Author & International Ghost Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 2

    A traditionally published author and international ghostwriter, I am passionately dedicated to my craft and my clients! My happy clients consistently say, "My project came back earlier than promised and with greater results than anticipated!" My non-fiction book, THE ENTREPRENEURIAL MOM: MANAGING FOR SUCCESS IN YOUR HOME AND YOUR BUSINESS, has afforded me countless opportunities since it was first released by my publisher in 2007 and then also picked up by a second publishing house. My novel, A LIFETIME OF FOREVER & ALWAYS, demonstrates versatility in my writing as I adeptly create characters; set scenes and craft plot lines that allow readers to become immersed within the story. I'm a perfectionist who strives for excellence and accepts nothing less! In over two decades, I've NEVER missed a deadline and I often deliver ahead of schedule! My clients span the globe and are published all over the world. I've written top-notch, highly successful books on a huge range of topics and in many genres. All manuscripts are delivered edited, formatted and immediately ready for publisher review. I professionally handle projects from start to finish and I make clients' projects stress-free until I deliver their masterpieces and make their dreams of becoming authors a reality! I work as a full-time ghostwriter and I'm a seasoned interviewer with previous media training. Decades of entrepreneurial and business experience guides me in delivering commercially viable books for my clients. Anyone can become a self-published author, but only a small percentage have the support and faith of a true, brick and mortar publishing house behind them! An even smaller segment of those authors located their own publisher and negotiated publishing contracts 'without using or paying an agent!' I am in that small, finite percentage, and it is my pleasure to guide others to becoming successful authors too! My years of experience deliver excellent results that exceed client's expectations every time! I handle clients' books with a multi-faceted approach and a keen eye for commercially appealing results; and I write every book as if it were my own. I'm happy to share my knowledge and experience within the publishing world to help clients take their books to the next level, and I'm available to clients both during and after our projects are complete. My satisfied clients span the globe and are guaranteed professional service, dependability and unparalleled creativity with every project! In addition to authoring my own books and writing clients' books, so that others may become successful authors too, I'm also a professional writers' coach and experienced literary consultant. I'm active in various Writers' Guilds, boards and professional organizations. No matter what objectives and goals clients may have, and no matter what phase they're in with their book projects, I consistently deliver top-notch results and finalized manuscripts that are ready for publication or publisher review! ___________________________________________________________________ *NOTE: Most freelancers do not divulge this, but it is always less costly to complete projects at a firm contract price, as opposed to an hourly rate. I'm happy to provide an all-inclusive price for my services because my goal is to 'build trustworthy and mutually beneficial relationships' with each and every client!

    Learning and translating all the time.

    Mexico - Portfolio: 1

    I was an English and French teacher for over ten years. I worked on academic magazines, as a freelancer, writing on very diverse subjects, from Comunication to Psychology... I love languages, I even met my french husband speaking just French and English, despite the fact that I'm Mexican and my first language is Spanish. I'd love to keep conquering interesting challenges, writing and most of all, learning. Each job, each new employer, represents a challenge, and I think, there's no better way of learning than challenging yourself. These past months working as a freelancer here in elance, I've also refined my skills in SEO and SEO writing. As I've said, I love the journey.

    My professional experience started in the employ of a Software Development firm.

In addition to numerous product reviews, more than three thousand (3000) academic papers and eight hundred (800) articles are testament to my output.
