I am a mother who is also a freelance writer. I have been writing for almost two years professionally. Almost all of my work is ghost writing and it is what I love. I also love writing pieces for magazines where I do get credit. I have written for many content mills and big name companies (eBay, Ask.com, and Amazon). I prefer fixed rates over hourly positions since I have young children.
