    Professional Ghostwriting, Copywriting & Editing

    Thailand - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 13

    Accountants can save you money; solicitors protect your money; but a good copywriter will make you money. I am a professional and published writer/editor, equally at home writing sales pages as editing books. As a 'Top Rated' Upwork featured writer I guarantee you 5-Star quality delivered on time, every time: from sales pages, web copy and blog posts to contributing to and editing non-fiction books. You can find cheaper writers - but no-one has ever said I didn't provide value! A few quick notes: *UK born and bred, but lived in Australia and Thailand for the past two decades. *I don't do Fixed Price jobs but we can agree strict hourly limits. *I don't ghost forum posts or product reviews - I feel that this is unethical and misleading. *You will receive fully-proofed, publishable copy- no sending back for constant amendments.

My background is diverse: from biology and information technology to changes in current US tax code. Words for me are both message AND medium.
