CV

Writer, journalist and reader.

Tom Shearman

I’ve enjoyed a 25-year career in writing, travel and the media. Show your business at its best by using my writing skills.

My recent projects showcase how my writing talents can bring you success across many fields. (Versión en español más abajo).

I can write books, articles, translate creatively (Spanish-English), and much more with my complete writing packages.

Want search engine rankings and customer engagement? SEO seekers will see ranking success as I skillfully weave keywords into punchy articles, blogs, product descriptions, et cetera.

Podcasters may enjoy Rincon de Tom, my irreverent explanation of English idioms (in Spanish) for community radio in Valencia.

(Just some) of what I can do:

Blogs and articles

Spanish-English translations

Books

Ghostwriting

Editing

SEO-rich website content

Keyword research

Reviews

Versión en español

En un presente repleto de ruido mediático, y con una audiencia global, las palabras deben estar bien elegidas para que el mensaje llegue al receptor con claridad, sin renunciar al carácter único y especial del discurso.

Distinguirse del resto con elegancia y sencillez, eso es lo que pretenden mis textos y traducciones en inglés. Sus lectores sabran apreciar la diferencia.
