I'm an exceptionally talented writer with over a decade of freelance experience. You absolutely want me to work on your project. I'm capable of writing just about anything under the sun. (No joke. Unless it's extremely scientific/technical, I can do it.) Read my feedback if you want testimonials. The ground rules: 1) I only accept jobs at my hourly from rated employers (or those referred to me by current clients), and a 100% milestone is required before I accept. Do not initiate a hire me without setting a milestone. I won't accept. 2) I'm not accepting writing team positions and I don't enter contests. Don't bother inviting me. I won't accept. 3) If you invite me to bid on your project, don't be quoting some cut rate in the description. (FYI: $50/hour means my rate per 100 words is a *minimum* of $5 for the simplest of work, but usually at least $10, and often more for jobs of any real complexity.) More About Me: I'm a native (US) English freelance writer and novelist. I'm extremely literate and the quality you'll receive from me is always going to be top-notch. I can do projects with a quick turn-around when needed. My past experience includes writing for online publications, fiction, blogging, lengthy articles, editing, ghostwriting (blogs, articles, novels), clarifying translated works, etc.
