I'm an enthusiastic and detail-oriented professional editor and writer with a master's degree in creative writing and ten years of professional editorial experience I am dedicated to supportive critique, to empathetic editing, and to the creative exchange of ideas. I am an experienced ghostwriter in the form of books, blog posts, articles, social media marketing, and SEO content writing. I take pride in my work, stick to deadlines and like to have clear communication with my clients. I have a passion for words and I especially enjoy researching and writing quality articles, blog posts, web content and product descriptions that are 100% unique. I also work with many non-native English speakers and non-writers who rely on me to perfect their work to ensure that they are only publishing quality content. Please feel free to get in touch if you think that I could be a good match for your next project. As long as it involves words, I'm happy to have a chat!
