Linda Wasmer Andrews
HEALTH PSYCHOLOGY WRITER
information for editors seeking a freelance writer
I am a reliable, readable freelance writer with a master's degree in health psychology. My specialty is writing about health, happiness, and the intersection of the two. I like to think of my writing as the verbal equivalent of a freshly brewed cup of green tea: warm, inviting, and brimming with salubrious properties.
I've been writing about health and psychology since 1982, so I have a long list of writing credits. But I’m definitely not resting on my laurels. Here’s a tally of what I accomplished in 2017 :
- 165 works written on assignment, including health news, feature articles, patient education and employee wellness content, app reviews, and infographic text
- 13 blog posts for Minding the Body, my long-running Psychology Today blog
- 7 projects edited on assignment, including employee wellness seminars
- 1 coauthored book readied for publication, titled If Your Adolescent Has ADHD: An Essential Resource for Parents (coming in mid-2018 from Oxford University Press)
Wondering if I might be the right writer for your upcoming editorial project? Let's discuss it.
