    I've been writing for over five years, both as a personal means of expression, as well as contracted freelance work. Over that time, I have completed numerous short stories, penned articles for social media and satire blogs and websites, and have written and edited chapters for various authors. Within fiction, which is my main area of focus, I write intense, emotional scenes to great effect, as well as dark humour. I write literary fiction and sci-fi, for the most part, but I also have experience in romance and erotica. Other creative work has included satire, emotional wellness blogging, social media how-to columns, and well-researched, informative articles on a vast range of topics. I am fortunate to have the opportunity this year to study an honours degree in Creative Writing through Wits University, during which I hope to perfect my writing style, as well as gain experience from interaction with and feedback from experts in the South African writing community. In addition to my own creative work, I am skilled at recognising and differentiating good writing from bad. I will utilise these skills to edit, critique and provide expert recommendations to ensure your work meets the high standards required for unqualified success. Within the corporate field, I write engaging copy for businesses and entrepreneurs, which provides information and guidelines, while maintaining the reader's interest and keeping them entertained when appropriate. Over the course of an honors degree in Psychology - including experience with group therapy and trauma counselling - I have gained great insight and perspective into human nature. This is a major strength in my writing. I write realistic characters and bring clarity and insight into stories, whether fiction or non-fiction. Overall, I'll produce work which is of a very high quality, in terms of writing style and content. Thanks for reading!  less

    During my years as a court reporter, I began a natural gravitation to other arenas in the "word" business. In addition to gaining experience in editing and proofreading fiction and non-fiction, I have written bulletins for organizations, ad copy for advertising specialties and radio spots. I have created letters, forms, and other copy for business. I reviewed plays for a literary agent and edited a modern music column for a journalist. Quality assurance and verification projects have also come my way. As an editor and proofreader, I was asked many times if I could convert to Kindle. Until a short time ago, I had to give a negative answer, but I have added conversion from Word to Kindle to my skill menu. In my 15 years of court reporting, I turned out thousands of pages of transcript on time or early. Excellence and speed were expected by my clients. It was necessary to absorb quickly the language and practices of diverse human endeavors: business, medicine, law, science, and government. That exposure together with my natural curiosity broadened my knowledge base. I bring that knowledge base to bear to give today's clients professional results efficiently and economically.  less

    Sometimes, no matter how professional we are in a particular field, we find our-self requiring an extra hand to assist us complete tasks that; sometimes, we can comfortably handle. In other occasions, we desire to achieve something, but we have no idea how to do it, or where to start. Here is where I came in. Nevertheless; on the onset, I admit that I am not a jack of all trade. I am an adept academic writer, economist and business analyst with over 5 years experience in the above fields. I am particularly experienced in writing dissertations, essays, reports, analytical papers, research papers, statistical analysis and other technical writings. Over the years, I have practiced and perfected the art of writing in various styles like APA, MLA, Chicago and Harvard among others. I have also learnt how to use various editing and plagiarism checkers like grammarly and turnitin that comes in handy in any form of writing. Finally, I have learnt to respect and understand every client since, we are all different; hence, the variation in our demands and requirements. This said; I am always willing to accord my services to all deserving clients. Whatever I do, I do it to please my God!  less
