What You Need

As a busy marketing professional, news editor or blog editor, you want to choose that professional strategic content writer quickly with a strong track record in journalism and content writing for marketing programs. You’re not looking to contract with a full-service content marketing consultant because you have an internal team or someone who provides full content marketing consulting services to you.

Rather, you need the specialized, add-on services for your projects of a strategic content writer whose passion and focus is writing but who also understands content marketing strategy. Finding the right complementary services can be challenging in a crowded marketplace.

Filling that talent gap where I provide the most value to my clients. They know by contracting with me, they are getting a strategic content writer whose experience proves I have top-notch expertise. You share your strategic content marketing objectives with me, and I apply my strategic content writing skills to produce the content that meets those goals. 

That’s how I provide strategic content writing services that most benefit your company or publication and do so at competitive investment.

What I Offer

My passion and the highest benefit I provide to any organization’s business objectives is writing clean, ready-to-publish content that increases relevance, reach, and revenue. Currently, I partner with defined service enterprises in the business, finance, and legal sectors to do so.

But, I’ve developed expertise across multiple service business domains and writing styles. So I’m a strategic content writer who can create content that will fit into your 360-content marketing plan. 

I bring my expertise as an award-winning, long-time journalist to any thriving—high growth or established—publication, financial services brand, content or digital marketing agency or high-stage small company for which I write content and provide related content marketing strategy services. Below is an overview of my areas of specialty.

Content Writing Services

With 20 years of professional writing experience, I can offer expert content writing services in a variety of forms, including: 

  • Editorial content writing
  • Newspaper and magazine article (shorts and feature writing)*
  • Blogging
  • Ghostwriting
  • Website content writing
  • Press content writing (except media placement)

An expert researcher, I have written and been published, under my byline, on a variety of topics including, lifestyle. But, my niches are:

  • Business Operations and Development
  • Commercial and Personal Finance
  • Residential Real Estate
  • Property and Casualty Insurance

I also can provide copywriting services to the hospitality industry, specifically larger hotels and websites that market them to affluent guests. See more details about my niches under What I Can Provide for You.

(* See the “Journalism” section below.) 

Content Marketing Expertise

I’m adept at writing news articles and editorial content in an audience-driven, relatable, SEO- and reader-friendly manner so you can use my content in every aspect of your content marketing plan. I also have WordPress and other CMS skills as well as work regularly on project management platforms to facilitate the content writing process.

Moreover, I maintain current inbound marketing techniques. I’ve been using social since 2008 (when I began coaching others to use the platforms). So, I’m able to help promote the content I’ve written across social media in a way that helps it get traction.

However, I only offer these services if I’m writing content for your organization. Please feel free to ask for more details on that when we chat.


I still write for limited top trade publications and media outlets providing only service pieces related to the service sectors identified above. I also write HR, travel, and some lifestyle articles. If you’re an editor interested in my writing for your publication, please learn more about what I offer on the Media Outlets and Trade Media page and review my recent writing credits and resume as well. 

I recently resumed writing hard news and investigative pieces primarily on subjects unrelated to my content writing niches. I’ve been writing both hard news and content successfully since 1998. I’m adept at distinguishing and separating the two. Even where I write content in an area similar to one on which I’m writing hard news or investigative pieces, the angles are entirely different and so is the voice.

I apply strict rules of journalism ethics and style to writing any pieces for bona fide news media and news-oriented blogs. Similarly, I employ current rules and strategies to writing editorial content for blogs and businesses.

Therefore, in most cases, there will be no conflict of interest in my writing for brands across the industry sectors identified on this site. If there is, I will inform you during our first contact. I make no exceptions to declining offers to write for enterprises where there may be some conflict of interest or about which I’d be inclined to write hard news or investigative pieces.

That includes banks, enterprises or individuals which have been in the news or otherwise sanctioned for committing fraudulent acts against customers, especially discriminatory ones.

If you’re interested in working with me or assigning me such work, please visit my other media enterprise website to learn more.


I routinely write bylined news and editorial content for a variety of publications, blogs, and brands. In all cases, I write to convey information in an understandable and motivating manner. Since the content must support your achieving your editorial or content marketing objectives, I make certain it meets the requirements of the news organization or brand. I am skilled in writing in my client’s distinctive “voice,” and never write down to your audience.

In addition to all forms of content writing, I am skilled at converting raw or draft content into readable form to make the ideas of those who are not professional writers (like most attorneys) read well. That also ensures your written content resonates with your particular audience. Most importantly, this writing work is designed to make you look like what you arean expert. 

The bottom line is simple: If it’s editorial business content, I can write it for you because I have probably done it many times for other clients.
