I'm Tami Olsen. Writing is not my passion.
It is my breath. My heartbeat. My dreams.
I’ve published my own novels online through Amazon, the iBookstore, and other outlets. Self-publishing has been a unique and challenging path, but has proven rewarding as my reader base continues to grow. Have a look at my list of books by clicking on this link.
I was the co-founder and copywriter of Simply Written. Simply Written was a beautiful and simple tool for authors. Compose, edit, and publish your own digital masterpiece in epub, mobi, or pdf format from a simple web interface. I maintained the blog and site content, as well as headed up ongoing research into better user experience. Simply Written has been retired now.
My freelance work has a broad range, keeping me on my toes and sharpening my skillsets. I've recently worked on game reviews, copy editing, video captioning, and feature articles. Some of my favorite projects are listed below:
