I have been a freelance writer for nearly 20 years. I worked for five years in the newsroom of a daily newspaper writing articles, features and columns. I currently contribute regularly to seven regional magazines on a variety of topics. I write on women's issues, parenting, homes, outdoors, Health, weddings, and many others. I am used to working under deadlines and understand the importance of meeting them. I am capable of doing research, writing the information and doing so in a timely manner while weeding out the information that is not needed yet making sure that the most important items are included in the finished product.
