I truly enjoy all aspects of freelance writing, whether articles, advertorials, copy writing, marketing materials, technical writing, or any other type of writing-for-hire work. As well as writing for magazine and news publications, I have experience writing:

press releases

marketing brochure content

marketing letters

technical manuals

company manuals

webpage content

I have never missed a deadline. I am available for freelance writing assignments.  

Editorial Services

I also work as a freelance editor for business, technical, web, legal and creative works. Generally, this type of work is confidential and does not include a "by line," however, one of my editing projects, Psalm 395, a novel  by Ross Anderson, is available to take a look at via

I've known Susan for several years and in that time I have seen firsthand her passion and skill for writing.

Susan is a hard-working freelance writer whose professional demeanor and willingness to take on last-minute assignments was greatly appreciated. She is a pleasure to work with.

Jessica (Groach) Santina
Professional Writer & Editor

As editor of RLife Magazine, I utilized a small stable of reliable, quality writers that I knew I could rely on to produce exactly what I wanted on deadline, and it was our good fortune to have Susan among them. She was consistently enthusiastic about taking on assignments, she was always on time, and her work was consistently top quality. In short, she was a pleasure to work with!

    Some writers are naturals, and that's how I saw Susan when she wrote feature articles for Nevada Home Magazine. Her style flows, her prose captures, and there is always a core understanding in the writing as well -- that something extra. When I was the editor for Nevada Home, I looked forward to Susan's articles. She made my job easy. I still look forward to reading her prose, just for the enjoyment of it.
