Storyteller for Hire

  • Is your company looking to develop or expand your online presence?

  • Are you an individual or brand looking for someone to put your story into words?

  • Do you need a regular, reliable contributor to your publication?

  • Do you need someone experienced at finding the heart of a story and presenting the subject in a positive light?

You’re in the right place.

My experience includes:

  • Studying the craft of story telling for over twenty years in both fiction and nonfiction, in genres and mediums as diverse as songs and musical theatre to blogs, magazine articles on a wide range of topics, memoirs and biographies, and a diverse range of fiction.

  • Owning several online businesses offering a variety of products and services for most of those two decades. Marketing at its best is telling a story that your customer wants to be part of. I am skilled at writing website and product copy that sings.

  • As a writer for promotional magazine Move Up magazine since 2016 (lead writer since 2018), I have interviewed countless people and told their stories, helping them put their best foot forward.

  • Writing four independently published novels and short speculative fiction work published in Constellate Publishing eZine.

  • Blogger since 2006.

 
I’ve had a few articles written about me over the years and never once, until I read yours today, did I finish and say “WOW… he/she absolutely nailed it!” Every word, every fact, every feeling I wanted to convey was conveyed by YOU! I want to express my enormous gratitude to you for writing such a brilliant piece. There is no way I could have written it better myself!
— Carrie Doll, Carrie Doll Consulting

Whether you need someone to create regular content for your company blog, a contributor to your print or online magazine, someone to create a coherent voice for your web presence, or someone to simply help you tell your own story, I would love to chat with you about it.

So what are you waiting for?

Let’s talk.

 

Services I offer:

I am capable of working in a wide range of writing styles and voices. These are a few of the services I offer:

Individual or Company Profile Feature

Journalistic-style article about you, your company, and what you do, created from an email or phone interview with you or your company representative.

Brand Development for Creative Entrepreneurs

For independent authors and creatives, it can be tough to figure out what message you want to convey with your branding and how best to do that, especially if you offer multiple services or types of products. I work with you to help you develop what that brand voice and image should be based on what ties all your multiple creative passions together—you!

Website Assessment

Everything you said was so helpful and right on. My website now communicates who I am, who my ideal client is, what I do, and how I can serve in a user-friendly way. Thanks so much!
— Melissa Keaster, wholeness coach and author

Have you built a website, but feel there are things missing? Or maybe it’s just lacking that certain sparkle you feel it needs to communicate your brand message the way you would like?

I’ll give you a detailed assessment of things that could be done better to improve flow, accuracy, and remove impediments between your message and your customers. Comments will be on navigation, ease of use, specific phrases or brand messages that may need improvement, imagery, and more. I’ll also include some comments to help you improve your SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

Make sure you are communicating clearly to your clients and engaging your target audience with this assessment!

Services for Authors

I offer services to other writers, including manuscript assessments, developmental editing, copy editing, blurb writing, and more. For more information about that, see my Editing page.
