I am a freelance writer and blogger in constant pursuit of my niche.
Writing has always been a strong passion of mine. I want to share this passion with an audience. Whether it's blogging or writing for a newspaper or magazine, I want to express this passion fully and I want it to be experienced by all. However, this passion can not be shared unless it is published. As a writer, I want you to see my ideas and my voice. My creative insight, feelings and advice that can help someone get through today. I don't just want you to hear my opinion. I want to hear yours as well. And if you have a story to tell, I want to hear it.
Since the fourth grade, I have always loved writing. I have written a few books, and I'm in the process of revising one to get my first book published.
I am currently a volunteer blogger, working from a local newspaper. I have over 30 entries published and counting. I have a degree in Journalism with advertising as my area of concentration. I am new to freelancing, but love taking on difficult challenges. I am highly motivated, intelligent and I always try to excel in everything that I do. I am a perfectionist who works in a timely manner.
And my experience speaks for itself.
