I am a freelance writer in the southern Indiana area with over 20 years of experience in writing, and over 15 years of experience in business writing. I enjoy collaborating with clients to understand needs and deliver results in a timely and professional manner. I am always open to a challenge and doing work that doesn't necessarily fit inside my niche areas. My philosophy is that there is always a way to achieve goals. It’s just a matter of figuring out how. Once you have accomplished that, the rest is easy.
My services include, but are not limited to ghost writing, letter writing, resumes, product descriptions, website content, business profiles, press releases, internal/external communications, process manuals, speeches, presentations and promotional material. Aside from business writing, I have had over 300 articles published in print and online. Credits include feature article writing for magazines and newspapers, how-to articles, and I have been a regular columnist for an area newspaper, covering legal issues, technology, politics and local area government. One of my favorite publications is Southern Indiana Living Magazine, so I became a regular contributor in 2008. This magazine features stories of extraordinary people and businesses in the area where I live. What can be more rewarding than being a part of bringing those stories to my friends, family and neighbors! Archives of the print version are available online at www.silivingmag.com.

In addition to freelance writing, I am a contract negotiator and am a subject matter expert in this area, with a focus on technology contracts from a global perspective. I provide contract language that offers solutions while minimizing risk for my clients. I am the founder and president of www.olivetreeenterprisesllc.com, and I am an active contributor to my community by speaking at events and serving as an officer of a local writers group, a committee member, mentor and teacher of a Kentucky based writers’ conference, and serving on the board of a national non-profit homeland security organization. My diverse range of activities and interests have provided a level of hands on education and experience that allows me optimal flexibility in how I serve my clients.
Thank you for your time in reviewing my profile, and I look forward to working with you on your project needs.
