    Although relatively new to the world of freelance writing, I have successfully completed several jobs on Elance with excellent feedback. I have a Diploma in Sustainable Horticulture and would particularly welcome the opportunity to write about health, nutrition and environmental issues. As an English Literature graduate (MA Hons Edinburgh University) I also have a strong interest in creative writing and can provide a mentor/editing/ghostwriting role to help you with your novel or short stories. Where research is necessary, I will do this thoroughly so that an authentic 'voice' can shape the material into original and engaging work. I can offer you a written product that is highly polished in terms of spelling, grammar and editing.

    Inspirational Nonfiction Writer

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Portfolio: 10

    I specialize in writing on the topic of the law of attraction. It has been my passion for the last 12 years, and I can write on almost any topic related to it. I am so passionate about it that I even manifested spending hours with one of the main gurus from the movie "The Secret," Dr. Joe Vitale. I am also a huge fan of Esther Hicks and I have spoken with her one on one too. Also, I have technical expertise as I was in the corporate world as a computer programmer for 16 years. In addition, I was a Life Coach for 10 years, so I have a lot of life experience to draw on whenever I help clients to get their projects done. As a computer programmer, I prided myself on producing software code that met the users needs and that had no bugs. Now, I pride myself on producing high quality work as a writer, and doing my best to ensure that my clients are happy.

    Writer and editor

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Portfolio: 4

    Versatile writer and editor. Writing is my first love and something I have a natural aptitude for, though I am always working on improving my craft and honing my skills. I truly enjoy helping people find the best way to tell their stories, whether it's as a ghostwriter or an editor. My ghostwriting projects have included novels, short story collections, book-length nonfiction, articles, and educational reading passages. I love the challenge of taking someone else's ideas and crafting them into a compelling and readable narrative. I am firmly committed to providing affordable and quality editing services. Writing a book is such a big achievement, yet for many people (myself included!) it is only the beginning on the road to publication. It is often difficult to clearly "see" your own work after a while, which is when the help of a seasoned editor will be indispensable. I've done everything from deep line editing to proofreading and am a voracious reader, an intuitive editor, and a meticulous proofreader. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to put their best work out there.
