I am a short-story fiction writer, originally from Southcentral Pennsylvania (a cultural mecca, if there ever was one). I am an 18-year Army veteran, where I served as a combat engineer and an intelligence analyst. I now call the MD/DC/VA area home, which is the center of all things spyish and espionagey. At this time, I write two blogs on HubPages. The first is "Jameson: The Explolits"; a spy comedy for those who like spies and comedy, but could never seem to reconcile the two. As for my second blog, I have just begun to write "Karaoke Memoirs", which will be a collection of short stories of many evenings in divey bars, singing songs and watching people's lives. On a more personal note, I am also the father of three children and an old codger of a cat.

Words are like paintbrushes, meant to portray the many different colors of thought on the canvas of the human tongue. Not one of these words, however, does justice to the masterpiece of unspeakable life to which it alludes; the power of the word is wrapped up in the beauty of its meaning, and the right words can paint the most lovely of pictures in the only place that they will ever be perfect --the mind's eye. I love to work with words. Whether they be poetic, persuasive, or poly-purposed, I will take the time to find the right words for whatever is needed in the time given. I can supply you with a more formal resume, as well as contacts, if necessary. Just email me at tamara.e.m.wilson@gmail.com and I will get back to you in 24-48 hours.

I have an obsessive command of the written language, a borderline-creepy contempt for errors thereof, and, perhaps most importantly, an acquired knack for tedium. It seems working in retail actually does carry some benefit after all! I'd rate myself above-average in terms of generating original written content, as well. However, I much prefer picking apart what others have already written. As weird as it sounds, I actually enjoy proofreading. Of late, I've begun branching out into video editing and production. However, until just recently, the equipment and software I've had access to has been utterly skeletal, and in any event, my skill and experience in the field is still fairly limited. I've also had a long-standing interest in the field of voiceover. But, as I haven't had any real outlet to that end until recently, said interest, a decent voice, and the necessary sense of timing is all I have to offer in that regard. In terms of being professionally creative, I'll be the first to admit that I am quite the neophyte. But I'm eager to work, eager to learn, and, for the foreseeable future, probably pretty cheap. In the interest of keeping my resume from being completely self-deprecating, I should mention that I currently write for the movie review site The Mutant Reviewers from Hell (not quite as juvenile as it sounds, but close).

Hello my name is Misty Keane and I started Wild Heart Portraits June 2011. I enjoy the western side of life and love outdoor settings for photos. I love to bring a rustic feeling into photos while keeping them simple and crisp.I offer all kind of sessions anything from single portraits to weddings. Don't forget about the furry friends you have at home also! I love being around all kind of animals big and small and also understand the patience it takes to work with animals. I love being able to capture the feeling of love when a couple first gets engaged or the excitement of a graduate. I would like to thank my cousin Barbara Butts with Hidden Key Designs for inspiring me to become a photographer. Also a huge thank you to all of my friends and family who have supported me on my new journey, I could not have done this with out you.
