I’m Sharon Hurley Hall – and I’m everything a successful professional writer is supposed to be and a few things they’re not. For example…
- I have more than 25 years of experience writing professionally – as a journalist, an academic writer, a blogger, a ghost writer and an online copy writer.
- I love to write, I don’t just do it because I can and I’m good at it – which makes writing the only and obvious choice for my career and business.
- I’m fanatical about deadlines (not just strict, but almost obsessive) – I have not missed a deadline in over 20 years.
I also happen to be a natural at the things many business experts might frown upon – these include:
- Being a polymath means I can write on just about any topic and excel at it – not really the “niche” approach that’s usually recommended for success.
- Being a ghostwriter means I don’t always get visible credit for the work I do – which means I can’t always provide social proof of my expertise and experience.
- Being able to write any kind of content you’re looking for rather than specializing in just one thing like resumés, search engine optimized web copy, ebooks or blog posts – which makes me a master of all trades and a jack of none
The field of writing is a competitive one but I prefer my work to speak for itself. I have numerous testimonials from satisfied clients…
“Sharon’s “dive-in-the-deep-end-and-get-it-done” attitude and versatility is such a pleasure to work with (and she’d never mix her metaphors the way I just did, which is why I trust her to write for me!).
She’s smart, fast and skilled at researching and writing for a variety of different niches, and she’s able to build capacity by teaching other people to work the way she does. Best of all, she’s cheerful and generous – a pleasure to work with!” ~ Cath Duncan, www.agileliving.net
How I Can Help You…
In an online world where it’s so easy to change what you do, who you are, who you work with and what you offer, it can be hard to find professionals you can rely upon…people who will be there when you need them. That’s what I provide for my clients – a solid, dependable and reliable service.
I help small business owners, online entrepreneurs, solo bloggers and group blogs create well-written, well-researched and accurate content – it’s search engine optimized, accurate (fully fact-checked) and always on time. I can edit and proof-read as well as write.
“Sharon was truly a pleasure to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable of her craft and very professional. I was impressed with how well she knows SEO and she is an amazingly gifted writer. She helped me grow my business and substantially increase traffic to my site.” ~ Nikki Purvy
As you can see, I’ve been doing this for over 20 years and I’m not about to stop now. If you need someone who will get the job done, with the minimum of hassle, who you won’t have to chase up and who will deliver something which requires minimal revision, I can help.
“I must admit, I did the “happy dance” after reading the articles. They’re perfect! No edits necessary. I’m not accustomed to that.” ~ Vickie Perry Barker
I’m used to working with clients who have never hired, outsourced to or worked with a professional writer before and have answered some of the most common questions about working with a professional writer here. If this is a new experience for you, I’ll make it easy and stress-free for you too…
“I have avoided editors because having an editor somehow seemed to me to be relinquishing control of my work. However, Sharon showed me that an editor could gently work with you, picking up pieces of carelessness or oversight in construction and generally streamlining a text without intrusion. The experience of working with her has changed my thinking, and I now consider her work as an editor a necessary stage of assistance in completing the writing project.” ~ Martha Isaac
More about me…
I’m a word nerd, fanatical about grammar, and interested in almost everything – or at least I’m fascinated by learning new things, so there are very few topics that bore me. Just as well!
With my academic background (an MA in Media and another MA in Education) I’m also a great researcher and my journalism skills enable me to triangulate and verify information before using it – skills which are vital to ensure your content is accurate and correct, when it’s so easy for someone to Google anything these days. You can see my formal resume here.
I’m a mentor to other writers and have been running the site Get Paid To Write Online since 2005 to help other writers improve and build sustainable and successful writing careers. I am active on social media – on Twitter here, on Facebook here and on LinkedIn here – and while the writing I do professionally is fact-based, I enjoy writing creative fiction and poetry purely for myself when (if) I get a spare moment.
If you’re looking for clear, concise content, without the fluff, I’m the writer for you. Get in touch now to talk about your project and how I can help.
“That hit the target! You are good and worth your weight in gold. Seriously, you hit all the important points without a lot of fluff.” ~ Darren Mason
