I’m a freelance writer with 20 years of business experience, most of it in the commercial insurance industry as an Account Manager. Early in my career, I handled smaller to mid-range sized accounts. As I became a more seasoned professional, I handled Fortune 100 companies.
Tiring of insurance, I was presented with an opportunity to become a requirements writer for a large research and development company. I wrote many requirements documents for the development of a blood analyzer machine.
My requirements career was a great segue to becoming a technical writer in which I wrote software manuals, documents and release notes.
Technical writing is far from exciting in my opinion. After a while of writing about the less than stimulating subject of computer software intricacies, I decided it was time for me to go out on my own and find more interesting topics. I was able to combine my many years of business experience along with my writing skills to become a freelance writer.
I began my freelance writing as a ghostwriter, writing several SEO (Search Engine Optimized) articles on the subject of insurance. I have since written articles on many different topics, both online and in printed publications. Recently I’ve ventured into the self-publishing, ebook arena.
My first book (which is now outdated, but still contains useful information), So You Want to be a Freelance Writer is free to download. The second book, Make Money Blogging is available as an ebook on Amazon for $.99. If you’re interested in becoming an online freelance writer or blogger, although outdated, these books provide valuable information to help you on your journey.
