What sort of education and experience do you have?
I’ve been writing regularly since 1996 and getting paid to do it since 2007. I’ve published hundreds of articles in dozens of places ranging from small business blogs to scholarly journals to Fortune 500 companies. Writing is not just something I do to pay the bills—it’s my central purpose and driving passion. Writing never “feels like work” to me—I enjoy it thoroughly and am always striving to hone my craft.
I have an AA degree in English, as well as AS degrees in nursing and biology. I have an excellent grasp of grammar and the three “main” style guides (Chicago, AP, MLA). I have extremely high standards of truth, clarity, and reader-friendliness for my own writing; I invite you to visit my portfolio to gauge them for yourself.
What are your office hours?
I work M/T/Th/F, 9AM–5PM mountain standard time (closed Wednesdays). I strive to respond to all emails within 8 working hours.
What are your rates?
I am an experienced, highly skilled writer/editor, and I charge accordingly. My rates for all projects start at $100/hour, $0.20/word for writing, or $0.05/word for editing. Flat-rate pricing is available for some projects and is negotiable on a case-by-case basis.
Rates may increase for services offered through platforms such as Upwork, which often charge substantial fees.
What is your typical turnaround time?
For projects longer than 3,000 words, please contact me for a quote.
Do you do ghostwriting?
Generally, no, but there are exceptions. Please send me a message with the details of your ghostwriting project.
Are you willing to undergo an interview and testing process?
I am more than happy to participate in your evaluation process, provided it lasts no longer than two weeks and includes no more than one hour of unpaid interview time. Alternatively, I would be glad to write a single trial article for you at an introductory rate. I do not write trial or test articles for free, nor do I take skills tests. I believe my work and extensive experience speak for themselves.
