My name is Harvey McCloud, your chief writer and editor. I have experience writing, ghostwriting, and editing all sorts of text projects, popular and technical. I have a can-do attitude and my versatility is unmatched, as you may see from my wide range of successful project areas below.

I love my work and enjoy getting to know my clients, many of whom I consider friends even if I've met them only through e-mail or phone. They learn right away I take their projects very seriously and we quickly establish a basis for friendly, effective communication. The result?
