Darlene Elizabeth Williams
I am a historical fiction and nonfiction author.
My historical fiction work-in-progress is based on the life of Harriet Jacobs, a 19th Century North Carolina slave, who wrote and published her autobiography. Her autobiography is the only extant US female narrative.
I am also a copy editor and proofreader, with a focus on independent historical fiction authors.
I am an avid reader of fiction fiction. My Pinterest board entitled “Historical Novels Worth Reading” lists only 4* or higher novels.
I like my historical fiction to be intelligent, well-researched and engagingly written. These are the novels I enjoy the most.
I also expect the same standards of myself in my writing, copy editing and proofing.

Content brokers are often viewed by freelance writers as offering abysmal pay. Wrong. You can earn $50 an hour.
“Content mills” are slammed in general, especially by established freelance writers who have years of experience and spent countless hours soliciting clients. Reputable freelance sites do serve a purpose for a variety of writers.
