Richard L. Servis Jr.
Technical Interpretive Writer
 
In my early years, I worked in several factories, garages, and machine shops. As a result, my experience, ability, and knowledge are very diversified. Later, I worked in the field of building and equipment maintenance for 16 years before becoming a freelance writer in 1987.

My intent at the time was to find work writing electro-mechanical operator's manuals, and assembly instructions. (I felt I could do better than what I had been forced to work with over the years). The most opportune work at the time was freelancing for a citrus trade magazine, which became useful for two other agricultural magazines. It kept me busy for several years, until publishing houses "reorganized", and used staff writers.

Since then, I have written for small local newspapers, and the St. Petersburg Times. I'm currently working on a series of small booklets.

I can write effectively on numerous subjects, although most of my clips are related to citrus. However, the citrus industry includes many relative topics, such as: Water conservation, water and air pollution, pesticides, fertilizers, business, farm equipment, food processing machinery, and laboratory research. There are also the subjects of OSHA regulations and the EPA.

My specialty is "downwriting" of technical material for the general public to understand. Hence, "Technical Interpretive Writer." I also like to write about travel, health and fitness, historical biographies, and numerous general interest subjects.

In addition to the subjects I have written about, there are other areas of interest of which I've become very knowledgeable. My "archives" of information take up several file cabinets. (If I found the right editor, I could write for the next five years without ever leaving my office). Leaving my office is not a problem however, as I am always available for most assignments, especially in the West Central area of Florida.

I am not strong on business and finance, the computer industry, medical practice, and solid state electronics.

For interested parties, I have a sheet I call "Personal Subjects of Interest", which I feel qualified to write about.

For subjects which you may feel are not within my area of expertise, I invite you to peruse the fine "herd' of Professional Freelance Non-Fiction Writers of the Pegasus Writers Stable. Think of them as your "stable" of writers. They do not miss deadlines, they will not put your publication's name in jeopardy, and their word is as good as a contract.

Each writer is more than qualified to write in his or her respective field/s, and is prepared to send you clips or bios upon request. All the members write for a living, and editors deal directly with the writer. All fees and/or payments are between the editors and the writers. The members dues help pay for the Pegasus Writers Stable website.

Editors and publishers are encouraged to self-enter their publishing needs in the section called "Editors Needs."    There is no fee for entries.
