Here are a few samples of my freelance writing assignments.
Samantha Parker is not a cop or a private investigator. She's a nosy paralegal with a talent for snooping, so when a handsome stranger walks into her office and gives her twenty-five thousand dollars to have her find out who is following him, she can't resist taking his case, even if she doesn’t believe him.
The background check on Ronald Gregory proves that he has been in trouble with the law before. Upon discovering this, Sam seriously considers telling him to take his money and get lost, but she has two problems.
The first is that she's broke and on the verge of eviction by her cranky old landlord, Mrs. Bennett. The second reason, which is equally important, is that she is extremely attracted to this hunk. On the other hand, she also finds it all very suspicious that he came to her when he could have easily gone to a professional investigator. That thought alone won't release itself from her brain, but she wants answers and is determined to get them.
In order to get a handle on Ronald, Sam decides to follow him for a while. It is during this time that she observes that he hangs out with some pretty shady characters. When Sam asks him about them, he tells her that they are like family and have always been there for each other, until now. He explains to her that his "friends" are involved in drug dealing, money laundering, robbery and murder.
Although he is not happy about the arrangement, they are still his friends so he continues to allow them to use his business to hide their criminal activities. They know he no longer wants to be involved in their dealings, and their relationship has become strained to say the least. As time goes on, Ronald senses he is being ousted. He knows what they are capable of and becomes convinced they are plotting a way to kill him and take over his business. But he is determined to take them down before they have a chance, and wants Sam to help.
When Sam doesn't hear from him again, she can't understand why and decides to take things into her own hands and goes out looking. That's when the search takes a turn from finding out who is following Ronald, to finding Ronald himself. She just never imagined it would lead her to the mob, murder and into the arms of the crime boss himself.

Samantha Parker is back with a new job as a private investigator and new
cases to solve. Frank, her boss, has finally assigned her a big case,
one that will surely help her to prove herself. All she has to do is
discover what could have happened to a college girl that has been
missing for seven months, and find out if she’s dead or alive. With an
increasing body count, it won’t be easy.
As a new PI without much more than her gut instincts to go on, Sam enlists the help of a detective in the police department to assist her in finding out what could have happened to the girl. He’s got the experience, and she knows in order to get the job done, she’s going to have to stay close to him and learn what she can. It doesn’t hurt that Detective Jake Reilly is oh so sexy either!

As you may have noticed, we are a society that loves information! We buy books, eBooks, self-help programs off late night television, and scour the internet to find it.
But why do we seek out all this information?
It’s because we either need it or want it. Maybe we are trying to solve a problem like how to get rid of carpet stains, or find a way to make extra money, or research a new city before the big move. Like I said, we love information and we can't get enough of it. So why shouldn't you provide what you know? Well, you can, and Writing How-To Information For Big Profits will show you how!

"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 copy writing needs."
