Are you looking for a talented web content writer?

Well, I have a love for the written word, but I also have a love for keywords. Sigh. 

Passionate About SEO

I pride myself on crafting blog posts, web pages, email marketing campaigns or even a simple email with the kiss of SEO perfection. 

In fact, all my clients tell me this. 

Compelling Content Matters

If you're not worried so much about search engine optimization, I can tell a story too. I have a masters in creative writing. 

Even the simplest about page deserves a good story. Otherwise, why bother reading. 

But, I don't stop with expertly crafted SEO or a compelling story, I also get a kick out of meeting deadlines. Hitting send sends a shiver down my fingernails (yes, that's possible). 

I can usually meet deadlines writing about any topic. My expertise is varied; ranging from health and fitness to digital marketing.  I've also been known to write about parenting, infertility, and chocolate. 

But, I don't like to pin myself in. I know how to research topics like a pro. 

Researched Freelance Writing

I can craft blog posts, website content, eBooks, and more.

Check out some of my publications, but most of my work is ghostwritten without publication credit. Kinda like being a mom or a university English instructor (I'm both by the way). I really don't need recognition, but it does give me a deep sense of pride.

I'm Amber. A freelance writer for hire. Nice to meet you!

Send me an email at I'm an experienced writer with reasonable rates.

Thank you for stopping by.
