Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

Are you looking for an exceptional writer who can command your attention with the first sentence? Look no further! My extensive professional writing and editing experience covers a host of subjects and genres: books, magazine and newsletter articles, blogs, poems and songs, test items, academic and technical reports, manuals, brochures, and press releases. I have written the text for two college-level psychology books and original material for many tests and two puzzle books. Drawing on my Master's degree in psychology and strong clinical and research background, I have also completed numerous writing, editing, and consulting projects.

Besides being very attentive to detail, I am able to meet tight deadlines without sacrificing quality. I pay meticulous attention not only to factual accuracy but also to impeccable spelling and grammar in all of my writing.

A creative, witty, inspired entrepreneurial gal.

United States - Last active: 15 hours ago

I was born to be a freelancer (I say "Heck No!" to cubicles), and love meeting new clients through Elance and oDesk! I make half of my income through online content creation, social media marketing, blogs, and any other copy work that comes my way. The second half of my income sprouts from my outside creative endeavors where I am an actress and video producer in Portland, Oregon. Creativity and discipline are a great match for me, and I hope to share them with you on your next project. I work well independently and in a team and am trained in article marketing, link building, and social media. Research is my forte, and I have no problem incorporating keywords seamlessly. My clients span diverse fields from kids science education, landscaping, wood floor sanding, and even UVC technology. I am willing to tackle anything, and truly enjoy helping businesses communicate with their desired audience. Message me today for ideas and rates on your next project!
