My creative and technical writing skills and expertise have been used in performing copyediting on newsletters, short stories, a business proposal, nonfiction manuscripts, various letters, reports, bulletins, media releases, brochure and poster layouts, and other alpha/numeric projects.

Allow me to showcase you, your company, or "that project”—you know, the one you’ve been putting off because you’re not quite sure how to get it done.

I’m a writer of fiction and nonfiction, which includes my own blog, and my most recent manuscript, a thriller, was shortlisted in the Word Alive 2010 national contest. For two years I had been a volunteer editor for Write! On, a weekly online newsletter catering to those in the writing, broadcast and publishing industry in Canada. I’m the editor-in-chief of the bi-annual newsletter, The Progressive Voice, and Communications Director for Progress Church, maintaining accuracy for print, web, and other media.

I am eager to do technical writing in the instructional manual area, ghostwriting on various topics, and Christian based work in fiction and nonfiction. Willing to start work in trade magazines and journals.

Your project is high priority and I'm determined to take it up a notch.
