Summary of Experience
Cindy has been writing since 1984. She has many years of experience as a technical writer and has written both user and repair manuals. She has also been published in consumer publications such as Radiance Magazine and the American Kennel Club Gazette. She has been writing Internet content since 2007.

She will write anything from informal general interest pieces through detailed technical documents. She thoroughly researches everything and uses only reliable sources of information.

Her work is consistently both on target and on time.
Specialties
Cindy specializes in informative articles of about 500 to 1,000 words. Many of my articles speak directly to the reader, presenting information in a useful, personalized way. If needed, she can make articles that are more encyclopedic in nature and has a great deal of experience with this type of writing.

Cindy also works with a number of academic clients, creating projects and documents that include references, footnotes, lists of works cited, table, graphs, and charts.
Interests
She lives in a very remote mountainous area, and is interested in many things related to living in such a place. Pets, livestock, gardening, hydroponics and aeroponics are a few of the things that appeal to her. Wildlife and conservation are also of interest, as are photography, family topics and writing in general. She also enjoys TV and many movies.

Projects by Asset Type
Article

Cindy has been writing full time for many years and has created hundreds of articles on many different topics during that time. She always writes to the client's title and content specifications. Some of her work uses my pseudonym "Cindy Quarters" while other work either has no byline or is given the client's name as a byline. She uses only the best references and resources for creating articles and always cross-references to ensure the reliability and validity of information.

Projects By Expertise
Technical Writer

Cindy was trained as a technical writer and has worked on projects such as the B2 Bomber and the Ford Aerospace DIVAD weapon. Other projects include software manuals and technical blogs and guides for various clients.

Projects by Writing Style
Authoritative

Much of Cindy's work instructs or informs the reader, and these articles must always sound authoritative without being stuffy. It's important to sound confident without coming across as being superior to the reader.

Conversational

Cindy's typical Internet content writing requires an authoritative but friendly tone. The preferred idea is to present as a knowledgeable friend whose thoughts and opinions can be trusted and acted on.
