To answer the question, why me...
Well, I have been writing for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I was shy and quiet with a really good imagination. I wrote a lot of stories.
As I grew up, I continued to write. In college I was the only person I knew who loved writing research papers and I put everything I had into doing a great job and I took pride in excelling in my educational endeavors.
As I ventured into the work world, I took on every writing project available, and found I had a real gift for communicating in a way that my audience could easily understand. I found that I could put myself in their shoes and it showed in my writing style.
I began to write marketing materials for various companies on the side when I finally decided to get some formal training and write full time. I absolutely love the process and enjoy the variety of projects I am able to work on.
Writing is not only what I do, but it's who I am.
maybe you are here out of plain curiosity. Some people are,
especially if they have never hired a copywriter before.
more likely you need a good copywriter – someone who combines writing skill
with the ability to communicate clearly and effectively in a way your customers
can understand and respond to.
Whatever your reason, you want to know more about a writer before you hire her. If we were sitting in your office chatting, I know you would have some questions you’d want to ask me about my copywriting qualifications, so I’d like to answer a few of them for you right here.
If you have additional questions about my copywriting qualifications I hope you'll give me a call at (951) 347-3715 or drop me an email.
I offer a free consultation so we can discover if we would work well together. I'd love to learn more about your project.

School District and held the position as judge for a program called Celebrate Writing, that encourages young writers to express themselves through creative
Before becoming a freelancer, I worked in the legal field as well as in education, always taking on the writing projects that were needed for marketing and advertising.
I have a B.S degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix as well as a degree in Paralegal Studies from the University of San Diego. Both programs required a considerable amount of writing & research.
am also a graduate of American Writers & Artists Inc. that
focused exclusively on commercial writing. I've taken many courses
through AWAI including Direct Mail Copywriting, Business to Business
Copywriting, E-Newsletter Copywriting, Web Writing and several other
courses to enhance my skills and experience.
I continue my education by regularly taking classes as well as reading extensively on business writing, SEO, advertising and marketing.
While I cover a full spectrum of assignments, about 85% of my
business is writing informational copy such as SEO web content, brochures,
E-newsletters, articles, e-books, instruction manuals, and ghost writing projects. The rest
includes creating a wide assortment of marketing communications materials
including sales letters, ad copy, fliers and postcards.
My specialty is my ability to write clear, credible copy in a conversational tone copywriting style. Whether you are informing, persuading, educating or motivating, I provide copy that communicates your ideas clearly and effectively to your audience.
Although I have written for a wide variety of companies from pet food to technology, I found that the health market was something I have a real passion for.
I have been a fitness, nutrition and health enthusiast for over twenty-five years, studying everything I could get my hands on. I continue to workout regularly and love to studying the latest information on all aspects of health.
It was really an easy decision to specialize in the field of health & wellness and I enjoy learning and writing about all the various aspects that make up the health industry.

It really depends on the project. For big jobs, preferably I like to have two to three
weeks to work on a project. That gives me time to research, write, edit, polish
and revise until I am happy with every word.

All you need to do is tell me what you want improved and what the changes will be and I will make them fast.
no charges for up to two revisions. They are included in the flat fee we agreed
to for the project, provided they are assigned within 30 days of your receipt
of the copy and are not based on a change in the assignment after the copy has
Since I do a lot of preliminary
research before I begin writing, such as client questionnaire, interviews, and
reading all background materials, I have found that most clients are pleased
with my copy when they receive it, but if you are not 100% satisfied, I will
revise the copy according to your specifications –at my expense.
Hiring me as your writing partner is easy.
First, tell me about your project and what goals you’re looking to achieve with the project.
Then you will gather the background information I need to get up to speed on your product or service and I will e-mail or bring you my questionnaire so I can be sure to find out all I can.
You don’t need to organize anything; I’ll do that, its part of my process. If I have additional questions, I will call or e-mail you, whatever your preference, and ask.
Once you give me the go ahead, and make the deposit, I will begin working on your project!

"A cardinal rule of writing to follow is, never write your own back cover copy. Why? You’re too close to the work and can’t be objective. Enter Maria Pease.
I contracted her services to write the back cover copy for my upcoming novel, Crossing Lives. The only caveat was, my manuscript was nowhere near finished. Despite this obstacle, Maria took on the project.
Most copywriters won’t touch this type of project unless you can furnish them with a copy of the entire work to be summarized.
In a span of three weeks, with just a few chapters and handful of character sketches to go by, she was able to craft a masterful blurb that captured the essence of the story I’m trying to tell.
Maria communicated with me on consistent basis and took a personal interest in my project. This was a pleasant surprise. Most “work for hire” is cold, aloof, and distant.
I highly recommend Maria Pease for all your copywriting needs."

Timo Kestrel - Website Owner, UK
"I needed a website for my new practice and I had no time or skills to do it myself. Thank goodness I met Maria through a business associate.
She had my site up and running in no time. She even gave me some suggestions on how to make some affiliate income along with the service I provide.
If you need a writer who listens to what you want and gives great ideas on how to improve it, call Maria. You won't be disappointed."
Sandee West - Marriage & Family Therapist
"Maria has developed a business brochure and numerous newsletters and has been able to interpret the information I give her into professional writing pieces that communicate to my clients the value of my product.
Maria’s professional knowledge has played a large part in portraying my
company in a professional light.
Maria Pease has been a pleasure to work with and I feel she would be an asset to any company in need of a commercial writer."
Lisa Beach -The Box Wrap Company
"I needed to update most of our marketing and sales materials including a brochure, a couple of sales letters, tips sheets and some in-house communications.

Wayne Francis - Window and door installation services
"My advice is to hire Maria Pease to write for you. She is full of great ideas and will execute them beautifully.
