Five things about me:
I freelance edit, proofread, and ghostwrite for other writers. I mostly work on manuscripts, but I polish up all kinds of written material (you can check out some of my client reviews and portfolio at www.upwork.com and search for my name, Donna Shannon). I've edited several published books and numerous articles. My rates are on par with average professional editing rates; I'm also open to bartering.
I'm an experienced transcriptionist. If you don't like to write or type, dictate onto an mp3 voice file and I'll transcribe and edit for you.
I am a (self)published author. I recently published my second book, "Beyond Mis-Education," written with the goal of empowering Black parents to advocate for their school children (especially the boys) effectively and with confidence. Public schools are largely letting American children down (note American schools' abysmal world rankings).l They don't look for brilliance in Black children and seem to jump at any excuse to recommend a behavior disability and the need for Special Ed (where they enter the pipeline to prison). Our kids can't advocate for themselves - parents have to step up and do it.
I do voiceover work (www.donnashannon.voice123.com). I haven't used that site in ages, but I believe my page still exists and you can sample my speaking voice. Maybe you need a commercial done for your business, or maybe you've written a book and want it read as an audiobook -- I like taking voiceover jobs as an occasional break from constant editing and proofreading.
Last but not least, I SING!! Love my oldies R & B. Recently discovered I even like a little country. My band is called One More Time. There's not a whole lot on our music page, but there's enough to give you an idea about our sound: www.ShowcaseYourMusic.com/oldiesOneMoreTime.
