You should hire me to write for you! Here’s why --

Seventeen years experience freelance writing, editing, online and print.

Fast, Persuasive, Accurate!

Freelance Writer – Website and Print

January 1999-present

I write and edit at a professional level on a wide variety of topics. I write fast, persuasively, and accurately.

Extensive training in the liberal arts allows me to take on even unfamiliar subjects and write with accuracy and confidence.

Due to my years as a newspaper editor, I am also very comfortable with writing to deadlines.

Eight years of higher education teaching has helped me to develop innovative strategies that encourage my own writing and that of others.. I teach history and English.

Rhetorical devices and the art of persuasion and hooking readers are my specialties.
