Ten Mini-Biographies for an eBook

I need ten short biographies written, around 800 words each, for ten specific famous people that I will give you the names of when the project starts. The purpose of these min-biographies is to compile a short eBook in which the theme of is learning lessons from the lives of these ten people. Therefore the biographical articles must take a certain form which lends to this theme, which is as follows:

The first paragraph must be a narrative description of a scene from the one of the more noteworthy events of the person’s life, something most people would know them for. For example, if one of the people were Abraham Lincoln, then the first paragraph might be a description of the scene at the Gettysburg address as he walked up the steps of the platform, approached the podium, and began to speak. You would describe the scene with the people there and the feeling that standing there watching him would have on the attendee, knowing that 50,000 Americans recently died there fighting against themselves, and that while the North now seemed to be on the verge of winning the war, it was still being fought.

The next 4-5 paragraphs (of each biography) can then be a usual biography, starting with the birth and childhood of the person and going through their life with an emphasis on the things they are famous for, and then ending with their death. This information is easily researchable on Wikipedia and other websites, but your biography must be completely original and cannot read like the Wikipedia page reads. This section, which is the meat of the article, MUST pass Copyscape and Plagiarism-checker! I will not accept the work if it is flagged as not being completely original by those services, and I WILL run it through them!

The final paragraph (of each biography) must be a “moral of the story” kind of thing. What we can learn from the person’s life and apply to our own. Be aware that a couple of these biographies may be for notorious people, whom the public doesn't really like. So the moral of the story will be different depending on the person.

Are there any good writers here who can do this for me? I wonder. I may not even award this project and just do it myself. However I am willing to entertain any persuasive arguments which you care to make that you can do this for me in an absolutely brilliant manner. Don’t worry about your bid being higher than others; this gig is not about price so much as finding the right writer. (I will of course ignore all bids that do not include writing samples and address the details of this project.) Native English writers only please.

Thanks!

Andrew
