Knoxville Freelance Writer, Journalist, Copywriter, and Proofreader

Location icon United States

I'm a freelance writer with a background in journalism, professional blogging, and proofreading.

Are you looking for a wordsmith who's committed to getting the job done well – and on time? Drop me a line. I've written news features, book chapters, blog posts for businesses, community news stories, and magazine features. And I've edited e-mail blasts, web copy, flyers and brochures.

I spent two years living in Germany's Black Forest region, so I speak a little Deutsch and maintain a love for schnitzel and bratwurst. I was homeschooled for 12 years and currently teach middle and high school English courses to homeschooled students at two local co-ops. I was an English major in college and I love Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, and the Brontës.
