    Currently working in a private Spanish language academy as the bilingual subdirector, I am hoping to expand my boundaries and utilize my skills on platforms that go beyond the walls of classrooms and offices. I have a BA in English Literature and a Masters of Education in Secondary Ed. and Communication Arts. I've done everything from call center work to tutoring (both online and in person), creating educational modules, doing transcription, teaching in public schools, and directing curriculum. My writing skills are strong, my interpersonal skills are fabulous, and my abilities to focus and be patient are (as you can imagine from a former middle school teacher) tantamount to that of a super hero. I also speak Spanish. I would love to work on your next project!  less

    I have a J.D. and a B.A. For many years I worked as an appellate attorney, practicing in both state and federal courts. I also practiced in the areas of criminal defense, employment law, and personal injury litigation. For several years, I was a part-time law school instructor of legal research and writing. I also did some part-time editing for a legal publication. While I maintain a mailing address in the United States, a few years ago I took an early retirement and moved overseas to pursue a more relaxing lifestyle. For most of the year, I live on a tropical island in the South Pacific where I work as a freelance writer, editor, and legal analyst. Although I write fiction as a hobby, I supplement my income by doing a variety of contract writing and editing. Most of clients have law-related websites, for which I produce blog posts, informative articles, FAQs, eBooks, and landing pages. I also write or assist in the preparation of legal documents and briefs. In addition, I have done academic and professional ghostwriting, including preparation of academic papers, website articles, and political position papers. On occasion I edit books for self-published authors. Among ongoing projects, I have a contract to write summaries of administrative law decisions for a trade association website and I regularly produce blog posts and articles for law-related websites. Although legal research and analysis is a specialty, I have a broad academic background in English literature, politics, and social sciences. My book blog is popular and I was once a front page writer for a popular political blog. I am available for freelance assignments only.  less

    I was an advisor to the BBC in London for two years. I am now a freelance writer and editor for discerning (and usually delighted) clients, itching to unleash affecting prose, or massage others' to fluidity. My natural writing style is engaging (and educational if needs be), entertaining and memorably unusual. I employ my vivacious imagination, broad awareness of evocative vocabulary, and thoroughly objectionable sense of humour. In the case of non-fiction, I incorporate research credibly into the flow of the text. I've written published books (e-books and hard copy), magazine articles, music reviews, copy, medical articles and website content. I consider myself a highly capable and perceptive editor. I have years of experience meticulously tightening and colouring novels, hundreds of articles and essays, non-fiction books, two film scripts, an e-book by an established UK psychologist, a book by an award-winning photographer and an e-book serving as guidance for professional writers. I am diligent to the point of beneficial neurosis: I notice mistakes (or thoughtlessness) in typography, flow, punctuation, structure or word choice in published works. I'm also a registered paediatric and emergency nurse, with a particular interest in holistic therapies. After graduating with Kingston University's highest mark, I went on to be a health lecturer, disaster relief worker, and advisor to various UK and Sri Lankan health charities. I helped create pilot schemes for the National Health Service. Now as a professional writer and explorer, I have no 'normal job' to interfere with my writing commissions. Writing specialisms: Humour Travel Health Music Food Film Fairytales / fantasy Children's Please see portfolio for examples of work. I currently reside in a dilapidated South-East Asian beach hut with a large spider and an internet connection. I enjoy eating, motorcycling and thaumatology.  less

    I am a UK graduate with a BA Hons degree in English Language, Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.

    I have 26 years of creative writing experience, including a published novel. I specialize in ghost writing, article writing and website content, but I can accommodate a wide variety of writing requirements. I have studied under Michael Chabon, a Pulitzer Prize winning author, and I have worked on academic research projects, dissertations and position papers. I have written and edited screen plays and maintain an active connection with Hollywood and academic circles within U.S.C. I take my work very seriously, but I think it's important to not take myself too seriously. I take great pride in ensuring that you are completely happy with my work, otherwise the project is not finished.  less

    Creative writing is anything where the purpose is to express thoughts, feelings and emotions rather than to simply convey information.The reason for the decrease in consumption of meticulously produced content is twofold. Fewer people actively seek good writing. But equally culpable are the publishing industries, the erstwhile guardians of good writing, which compromise the quality of periodicals and other publications because they discourage labor-intensive practices necessary for producing high-quality writing, practices inimical to lean-business strategies that result in high profits.  less
