Looking for a reliable freelance writer? Look no further. Clients say I'm a "dedicated," "creative," "thorough," "fair-minded," and "hard-working" writer who produces "well-crafted, well-researched articles," even when "the subject matter [is] complex" and the audience "demanding." One client says, "I was more than pleased with her work. I was thrilled." I've been called "a joy" and "a pleasure" to work with.
I'm a generalist who quickly gets up to speed on any topic, including health, psychotherapy, advertising/marketing, retail, freight transportation, and road engineering. My web experience includes creating websites; producing slide shows; blogging; writing e-newsletters; and writing daily, live news updates from conferences and trade shows.

"I was running a site for New York Times Digital as part of my consulting practice. I had the opportunity to ask Martha to write a few articles for me. The subject matter was complex. The audience was demanding. She performed perfectly. Her work was well written, thoughtful and on-target. More importantly, it perfectly reflected the highly sophisticated audience of online professionals at which it was aimed. I was more than pleased with her work. I was thrilled."
- Paul Conley
