Life has a funny way of helping make our decisions for us. I started out on my way to becoming a doctor by profession and a writer on the side, but I ended up on the path to being a full-time freelance writer first and a niche specialist next. :) Now I specialize as both content writer and ebook ghostwriter. Used to ghostwrite under an agent (UK) since 2009. Made the transition to freelance writing on this site starting 2011.
