nDash Writer Profile for Shane Hall

Freelance Writer and Author of Speculative Fiction

About Me

I wrote my first novel when I was sixteen, and over the course of college I completed four others. These days I am an author going through the early stages of a foreign rights publishing deal and have been paying the bills through freelance copywriting. This has given me a balanced amount of experience in both writing fiction for myself and freelance copy for clients. I have mastered storytelling and its ability to grip readers, whether in a novel or on a webpage.

My rapidly-growing repertoire of freelance copywriting is mostly blog writing and product descriptions. I've written for everything from outdoorsman sites, national and international travel sites, college sites, philosophical and motivational blogs, business and marketing blogs, and more.

I am looking to expand into even more industries, so if I pitch you and don't have many samples of the kind of work that you need, I ask that you give me a shot. You'll be happy you did!


If you have questions, please email me at shanecarlhall@gmail.net, or message me through this site. Thank you.
