Belly up to the bar for freelance writing the way it should be -- made to order and guaranteed!

Tasty writing should leave your readers licking their lips, feeling good and dare I say a little tipsy. And wanting more, of course. 

I'll admit, I'm particular about the projects I take - only ones I know I can pour without messy spills. But if I take it, count on some  lit readers. That's why I have clients who return again and again.

Like most bartenders, I'm a good listener.  So, whadya have? If I can't do it, I might be able to find a fellow freelance writer who can.
