Welcome to my profile! My three greatest passions are reading, writing & editing. As a full-time freelance writer and editor, I get to do all three! My specialty is tailoring the tone and style of a piece to convey your brand not only through the content, but also through the writing itself. Whether you need an individual bio, an About Us page for your company website, or a resume and cover letter, I know how to craft a compelling story that will engage your readers and lead to success. Whether you prefer a more professional tone or a more conversational approach, I will match your voice on any project and make your piece sound polished, engaging, and grammatically perfect. I believe my years of experience in various kinds of writing as well as in research, editing, copy editing, and ghostwriting create a package of competence & expertise. I find working closely with new people on writing projects. Connect with me. I'm the rare unicorn of writers and editors you've been looking for.

    “Regardless of so many inputs and material provided, Alyson delivered a lazy and terrible service. Her English, expressions, way of talking and behaviors don't match to someone that comes from where she claims to. Try looking for her name online and you will not find anything. Besides, she was daring enough to just sent her low standard files and without even asking for my opinion, filed a dispute expecting the money to hit into her account because “her child is in the hospital”. Attention!”
