Sydney Whalen

Writer and Editor

Sydney Whalen is a freelance ghostwriter, blogger, and content developer and a former English and creative writing teacher. She’s written on a wide variety of topics, including technology, education, publishing, and social media marketing. When she’s not writing for others, she’s working on her own creative writing and networking with established and aspiring writers online and in her home state of Colorado. She spends her spare time reading, gaming, doing yoga, and playing with her son. Sydney believes in the transformative power of the story and aspires to help others realize the stories they have to tell.


Sydney is excellent. She has written three books for me (more to come) and her writing skills are amazing with very few revisions. She is grammatically spot on no matter if it’s the rough draft or the finished piece…I know how important that is for authors. I highly recommend Sydney for any project. You will enjoy working with her.

I’m torn about publishing this unreserved recognition, because I’d like to keep Sydney a secret so I don’t have to wait in line to hire her again in the future. But the fact is, she’s really good. Her work is excellent in every way. She’s going to be an Elance star, so you’d better book her on her way up, because once she is discovered, we’ll all have to wait in line a long time.
