    Author, Ghost writer, Narrator, Editor

    United States - Last active: 18 days ago - Portfolio: 2

    For 3 years, I have been an audio book narrator. I began to edit authors books as I narrate, and soon I was hired on the side as a narrator. Then, I was asked if I could add things into books that the authors just didn't have time to add. I was then doing copy edit work on the side. Soon, authors saw that I have a skill in writing, so I was hired on as a ghost writer. I have been ghost writing books full time now for about a year, and I love it. I write both fiction and non fiction books or articles. I am an author, ghostwriter, narrator, and editor. I work quickly, and efficiently. My work is always 100% original, I hate plagiarism, and have no tolerance for it. I write 12k books as a ghostwriter, and I can easily do 2 per week, and handle other jobs as well. I won't take any less than .01 cent per word, but because of elance fees, I know I am worth more than .01 per because my work is worth at least a penny I research everything, and work hard on everythingn I do
