Diane M. Calabrese, firstname.lastname@example.org, Silver Spring, MD. Name it. I've written about it. Adrenocortical carcinoma, biofuel and bugs begin the A to Z list, which concludes with topics such as optimization, steam, worker safety and zoos. My portfolio includes articles, essays, website content, newsletters, brochures and book chapters. A generalist with the curiosity and research skills of a specialist, I write most often (but not exclusively) in the spheres of industry, medicine and business. Sometimes pen name is April Hirsch; I also ghostwrite. Send me an email about any topic and expect a prompt response with relevant clips that demonstrate what I can offer.
