I live and breathe to connect people through words. But not just any words -- words that explain, intrigue, excite, assure and inspire action. Over 25+ years in marketing copywriting, I've become a word ninja. No one is immune from my mighty pen! One thing I love about oDesk is the opportunity to meet and work with businesses and others (artists, students, professors, authors, etc.) around the world. No matter what you have to say, you'll be more effective with my razor-sharp mind and razor-sharp style leading your messaging charge. For mighty results from my mighty pen, you've definitely come to the right place! Susan Reid/Mighty Pen Writing & Editing "The pen is mighty indeed"
