Hire Me

I have been a professional writer and photographer since 1990.  The research skills I gained obtaining my Ph.D. in psychology serve me well in writing concise, targeted articles on a wide variety of topics.  My high school job working for a photographer taught me how to make plant and animal portraits with maximum impact.  Detail oriented and passionate, I can help you with your writing and photography needs.  For more information on me, check out my bio.  Contact me at stephaniesuesansmith at to discuss what I can produce for you.  View my copywriting site, to see my copywriting services.


I write passionately on almost any nonfiction topic.  I can write for consumer publications, academic publications, or business to business publications.  In addition, I can write copy to sell clients on your product.  Need blog content?  I can do that for you.  In fact, I can set up a blog in WordPress and manage it, while feeding content to the blog as you need it.  I can even set it up as a website and blog all in one.


Book Trailers

A three minute book trailer is $50 if you supply the photographs, music, and text.  If I need to round them up, the cost increases.  Ask for custom prices.  You can see examples of my book trailers on YouTube.


I have plant and animal portraits of many North East Texas species.  They are available for license to use on websites or in print.  Many of them are on my photography blog.  Prices are $50 for a one time use in a print publication on the inside.  A website, non-execlusive license is negotiated based on traffic and duration of use, but starts at $50.


I do scroll saw work and small boxes.  Examples of both are on my woodworking blog.  I can turn a photograph into a scrolled work of art, make a fretwork box, or do inlay.  Prices depend on the wood used, the difficulty of the project, and the time it takes to make it. Contact me at for a quote.
