My name’s Melanie. I’m a writer.

I create a unique voice for your web presence by crafting high-quality web copy.

But I love to write all kinds of content, including:
•  marketing copy for print.
•  newsletters.
•  blog posts.
•  technical documents.
•  reviews.

What about SEO? Well, the most engaging web copy in the world isn’t much good if no one can find it. That’s why I tailor my web writing to make it as findable by search engines (and your customers) as possible.

Sometimes, though, you need more than copy — you need a plan for delivering and maintaining content across several publishing platforms. No worries! I can help you with content strategy, too.

Want to know a little about my work?

I’ve written for:

>   Rackspace Hosting

I currently work as Senior Content Strategist for rackspace.com. That means I help plan, write, edit, and maintain content for the website.

>   cPanel

I wrote technical documentation (user manuals, API docs, and UI copy) for control panel software for Linux servers.

>   Crutchfield

For four years, I worked as a copywriter for this venerable consumer electronics catalog, as well as its website.

>   RELEVANT Magazine

RELEVANT has published several of my artist interviews, reviews, and even a devotional article.

>   Foreword Magazine

I wrote book reviews for Foreword (and its Clarion service for self-published authors) for seven years.

>   Highland Lakes Business Journal

When I lived in the Texas Hill Country, I wrote articles about local businesses, which were published in this newspaper. I also researched and wrote articles for its sister publications, The Picayune and The River Cities Tribune.

>   Aether Logistics

This now-defunct software company specialized in creating custom applications for handheld devices. I got to learn lots about software development when I created a complete user guide from scratch. I also wrote use cases and other internal documentation.
