A letter of testimony I was hired to edit and revise - this is the final version I turned in and was given a bonus for. The original, which is all I had to work with, has also been posted here in my portfolio so you can compare. I did ask the client a few questions to ensure the specifics in my version that were not in the orginal were correct. To see the original, simply look in my portfolio for a document with a description that begins with: "This is NOT the finished item!!"

This is NOT the finished item; this is the original item, provided to me by a client, who hired me to edit and revise this letter of testimony. The final work is also in my portfolio so you can compare. This client wanted a rewrite to make the letter a bit longer and more professional than this original version. The client was happy enough that no rewrites or further revisions were required, and I was given a bonus for the job.

First chapter of a book telling the story of a girl who struggles to give herself and her family a safe, secure and financially stable life - at the same time living a second life of pure hedonism. How the dark side eventually destroys it all and she loses everything she's worked so hard for right after she turns thirty. During the struggle she keeps noticing unusual coincidences - and time after time she is forced to see how whatever trauma she is enduring is necessary in order to avoid something even more horrible. A novel of selfishness and selflessness - wholesomeness and debauchery - intense pleasure and unspeakable pain. A story exploring Karma, Destiny, and Chance - and how no matter which it is, in the end - there truly is A Reason for Everything.

Short children's story - not quite a chapter book, but certainly advanced beginner. Probably ages 6-9, depending on skill level.

This is a love poem I wrote some time ago - I have posted this mainly so my portfolio will not be blank, but it does illustrate some of the methods I use and how I might use them in poems.

About Me:
Seeking to escape Corporate America. Excellent detail oriented editing skills - spelling, grammer, flow. I write more easily than I speak, and more quickly. I can write about anything you'd like to hear about - or, I can proofread whatever you need me to. Format Word, Excel, Power Point, etc. - documents to make them all nice and pretty. Professional or frivolous- whichever you prefer.

Very flexible and just want to make some extra cash to cover the dry spells that are unfortunately part of life as a contractor.

Tell me what to write about and I will write it. Skills range from technical specifications to catchy one liners; professional, version-controlled documentation to sword and sorcery short stories. Also can do proofreading and editing - as light as spelling and punctuation...
