Writing has been my sole means of support for 2.5 years now. I ghostwrite as well as writing under my own name (as well as my maiden name, Nicolai). I have a way with words, and my personality generally makes a pretty strong appearance.
I'm also big on research, and honesty in writing. If I don't know, I'll look it up. I don't use fluff or filler. I've never had a "job" I enjoyed as much as I do writing.
