Early in my career I wrote a short story for a small newspaper contest and won first place. That got me seriously looking at writing as a career. I worked at this same paper, The Coast Mountain News as production assistant for a short while. Moving to a bigger centre in the Okanagan for my son's health, I continued to supply hard news articles to the paper throughout the Okanagan Mountain fire of 2003. Settling in Penticton I was asked to be a ghost writer on a large web writing project, giving me the chance to learn more about article writing and web reporting. As a travel writer I enjoyed seeing the hidden gems in BC. It really is "the Best Place on Earth". It was an amazing journey in expanding my writing experience, learning more about my own back yard and writing with a team. Consequently because of my love of writing, I have chosen freelance writing as a full time career. I have traveled around the world and while living in Switzerland for almost 5 amazing years I travelled adjoining countries extensively. I feel this experience is an asset I can bring into my writing. I am committed to providing informative and well-written articles on tight deadlines. My areas of expertise include: Canadian history, community research, hard news stories, fiction and more recently, home renovations on a budget. Since I began my freelance writing career, I have had the opportunity to travel and see many parts of my home province, British Columbia. If you have an area- or issue-specific idea for an article, I look forward to sharing some of my experiences with your readers through my writing. I am excited to report that my first novel will be published this year. Please keep checking Facebook, Blogger, and Twitter for updates and I'll make sure to let you know when the release date is.

This was the best decision I have made in a long time. Renate was a huge asset to my consultancy; revealing a great intelligence, a wonderful friendly nature and the ability to work unsupervised. She worked hard and showed a good deal of talent at whatever task I asked of her. This included assisting in the star grading of several properties, internet research for travel articles and writing a draft article plus a travel blog entry, taking dictation and notes at meetings and typing them up, filing destination information requiring a knowledge of the geography of southern and east Africa. She also took part in a one-day travel writing workshop that I facilitated. If I had a position for her, I would jump at the chance to employ Renate. I believe she will be a great asset to any business. Feel free to contact me on the above contact details if you wish for verbal confirmation of the above. Yours faithfully, Carrie Hampton
