An informal look at my work:

I would have to say that there are very few things that I wouldn’t write about because they contain specialized knowledge (e.g., rocket science) and a few that would make me want to poke out my eyes before I was done (e.g., some mechanical issues). Other than that, I’m open, given that I have enough info to proceed. Some examples of things that I’ve written:

• e-book on job interviewing techniques
• Synonymizing for poker website
• Online bingo report
• Travel reviews (extensive)
• Profiles/bios
• Quizzes
• Trivia
• Sales letters/reports
• Reference letters
• Letters of application (job/grad school, etc.)
• Every kind of corporate writing imaginable
• Ghostwriting – technical, general, historical
• Book analyst for Bookrags.com

I have a long list of projects, both complete and in the works. I’ll just give you a brief run down of each.
