Who I am
Hello! My name is Frances Colleen. I am a Registered Nurse by day, freelance writer by night, and working mom to two lovely daughters under five.
I also accept requests for writing articles about other subjects, but my favorite topics include natural, conventional, and alternative health-related content. Personally, I enjoy writing wellness-related articles in a way that is understood by all.
I have worked in aged care and am currently into surgical nursing. I have also served as a clinical manager of a care home and have been on the receiving end of marketing for health-related products and services, so I have first-hand experience as a buyer and evaluator of these commodities.
I have finished a course in Clinical Aromatherapy and am putting this knowledge to use by making soaps, personal care products, and concocting natural remedies as gifts for family and friends. I share my findings and concocted recipes on this blog as well.
Where I am
I am based in Auckland, New Zealand and have been here for a few years now. Originally coming from an American colony, this puts me in a dilemma as to which version of English to use (UK or US?) oh, the agony. But I will write in either US or UK English depending on your specifications.
Depending on daylight saving time, we are currently 12 to 13 hours ahead of the rest of the world. I work to our New Zealand time zone, so you can reap the benefits of having my work handed in 12 to 13 hours ahead of your local writer
Why I write
The written word has always been there for me when no one else has, and I believe in its power to affect lives, shape beliefs, and influence decisions. I believe in the power of the written word.
And as someone who has been on the sending and receiving end of this form of communication, I want to help individuals, businesses, and organizations say what they mean AND mean what they say to their target audience, in the best way possible.

Need content? I can help.
It is my work ethic to bring you compelling content that is well-researched and always submitted on time.
I am a real person using my real name on the Internet, and I have a reputable electronic footprint to keep. You can be assured that I will keep to my end of our contract in providing top quality articles, blog posts, and reports.
Health-related content as a specialty
My profession as a Registered Nurse in the trenches is an advantage for writing health-related content, as understanding what you want written about your product, organization, or service comes naturally for me.
I am where the patients, managers, and charge nurses are and I can easily see what they want and what they are looking for.
It is my absolute pleasure to match their wants, needs, and questions to what YOU as my client can offer them.
Feel free to send me a message. I look forward to working with you
