Hi, I'm Elsa K. Simcik, freelance writer. I've been writing since, well, since I could write. There was my novel Tammy the Dog in first grade (Tammy was male, by the way) and there was that Haiku that won me an award in second grade.
Fast forward to the year 2001 when I became a full fledged freelance writer--doing articles for dating websites about things like "when to take your relationship offline" and "tips and tricks for date-worthy profiles." Over the years my beat has changed--fitness, family and profiles of interesting, sometimes moderately famous people. There was even that stint as a fashion columnist.
But one thing hasn't changed. I write reader-friendly, non-flowery, well-researched copy (and apparently I really like hyphens).
My work has appeared in The Dallas Morning News, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, CNN.com, Simply Buckhead Magazine, Atlanta Parent, Atlanta Life Magazine, Frisco Style magazine, Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine, Front Desk Magazine, The Daily Candy, MSN.com and more.
