Hello there. Thanks for stopping by my profile! I'm a writer and lover of words. My core strengths are research, creativity, accuracy, and attention to detail. I'm comfortable writing in both British and American English, and am adept at writing in different voices and styles. I'm communicative and deliver jobs to deadline. I'm also a quick study. That said, I will never take on work I'm not confident I can complete well. I have over a decade of experience in writing academic, educational, literary, historical, travel and decor research papers, study guides, blog posts, and feature and newspaper articles. I'm also a highly experienced editor, so I always deliver clean copy. I have worked in publishing, digital marketing (hello SEO!), and secondary and tertiary education. I'm well versed in copyright law. I have had two blogs of my own, one on history and the other a personal blog.

    “I liked her word choices”

    “Megan is exceptionally good in deciphering my comments/feedback (that maybe in the form of some decrypt questions). She is good in "find the message" and incorporates it into the book. She updates me regularly and on timely basis. She can adapt her writing style to suit my needs. She works independently with little input from me. I have rated 5* for every area and strongly recommend her to anyone who needs a researcher and writer.”

    “Megan is such a gem. She is serious in her work. She communicates often and sends me drafts of her on a regular basis to ensure she is on the right track. She is very organised in her thought and did a very thorough research. All these were reflected in her work. I do not have to worry when I work with her. Her commend of English is strong. She comes across as someone sincere and very honest. I am strongly recommending her to anyone who needs a good and responsible researcher and writer.”
