Since I’ve worked as a professional writer for over 30 years, I have all kinds of writing samples. Many I can’t share because the company I wrote the material for considers it proprietary. Here are some samples I can share.
Here’s a Google Drive link to the files with articles, fliers, technical documentation, and more that you can review.
I’ve written for numerous national magazines about topics as varied as caves, bats, erosion control, and how to run a pet store. Writing for magazines is so much fun.
I’ve written one book and edited numerous books for other authors. I specialize in editing nonfiction, business books, memoir, and personal history. I designed a crowdfunding campaign to fund the editing, cover design, and printing for my book and raised $5,000 in less than 30 days.
Business & Nonprofit Marketing Materials
Businesses and nonprofits need many different types of materials to market their businesses. I’ve designed and written white papers, annual reports, brochures, marketing fliers, web page text, press releases, grant proposals, and more. Visit this Google Drive link to see some examples.
Technical Writing and Editing
I’ve written technical materials for some fascinating businesses. Most recently, I wrote operating procedures for a giant gas atomized metal powder furnace that produces powder for 3D printing. In the past, I wrote user instructions and marketing materials for complex engineering, telecommunications, and architectural hardware and software . I even got to write operator instructions for labs at NASA that tested materials to include on spacecraft. Most of my technical writing samples are proprietary, but a few are for software products that aren’t available anymore and yet others are available on public websites. A few of my technical writing samples are in the Technical Writing folder on this Google Drive link. I’ve designed and written a wide range of material for software products, database applications, and many types of hardware. The types of materials I’ve designed and written include user guides, reference guides, user tutorials, getting started guides, quick start guides, database administrator guides, configuration guides, and installation guides.
