My name is Carron Nicks.

I spent 25 years practicing law and have parlayed what I learned in my successful law practice into a successful second career (something I should have done long ago): freelance writing.


Much of my writing focuses on legal topics, consumerism, personal finance, aging in America, and humor.


All writing is storytelling. As a litigator, I was charged with a duty to present my client's story in a compelling way. Word choice is key to fashioning a stellar presentation. That is true whether you are regaling your party guests with an amusing anecdote, creating a piece of fiction, introducing your brand to new customers, or convincing a decision-maker of the integrity of your position.

Fundamentally, the job of the writer is to teach: we boil down a topic to its essentials and present it in a lively and coherent style designed for the intended audience.

If you have read this far, I commend you. Still, you are probably saying to yourself, "Yeah, yeah, that's all well and good. But what can she do for me and how much is it going to cost?" Fair enough. Whether you are looking for web solutions, feature articles, or marketing materials, I am the writer you need if you want your story to entertain, engage and enlighten.



"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."  

-- Ernest Hemmingway
