Ever since I was a little girl, I loved the written word. As a 5-year-old, my collection of “Golden Books” was the envy of the neighborhood. By 10, the bookshelf was bulging with tales of adventure, fantasy worlds and far off places. Carolyn Keen, Franklin W. Dixon, Enid Blyton, and C.S. Lewis rocked my world. As time wore on, they were replaced with Raymond E. Feist, Janny Wurts, James A Michener, and Elizabeth George. Although, I do like to revisit Narnia at least once every five years.
I loved to write as well as read. My first taste of fame was a poetry competition in third grade. First prize was a free lunch at the tuck shop! Now that was hitting the big time! A pie and crisps never tasted so good.
Adulthood arrived, and aspirations of becoming a famous author made way for the day to day business of being a “grown-up.” Instead of stories, I wrote policies, procedures, work instructions, risk management plans, and training resources. Don’t get me wrong. I made an excellent living, and I’m pretty dang good at it. But it’s not the same thing as topping the New York Time’s best seller list, is it? Thankfully all that experience comes in very handy when writing for others.
My husband Tim is a Graphic Designer, and we’ve both embraced a “location independent” lifestyle. We’re both qualified English (ESL) teachers and divide our time between exploring new destinations and teaching in Ho Chi Minh City. Trust me. There’s no better way to get a thorough grasp of the English language than to teach it!
A few years back I wrote and self-published a book to help out other long-term travelers. It got great reviews and lots of positive feedback which was just a little bit awesome! Then…Hooray!… Fate intervened, and I sold the second edition to a publisher who’s developing it into a premium product, which is due out soon. (Sorry, that means the original is no longer available to the public.)
By early 2018, my freelance writing client base had grown so much I didn’t have time to teach. Tim now helps me out, and we divide our time between clients and exploring the world.
We freelance for a diverse set of clients, across multiple forum and base our success on four fundamental principles: Quality, Experience, Value, and Client Satisfaction.
