Creativity, Reliability, and Passion. What more could you ask of a wordsmith?
My name is Nikolas T Monastere and I am a writer. I've had a passion for writing since I was young, though I've only just made a job out of it. Before seriously settling into the craft, I worked a plethora of jobs and had a mountain of experiences. I was a paratrooper with the US army for five years, serving as an infantryman and hand to hand combatives instructor with the historic 82nd Airborne Division and deploying to Afghanistan for nearly 10 months in 2014. After receiving an Honorable Discharge in 2015, I worked as a laser operator and then a quality assurance technician for Magna, the largest automobile manufacturer in Europe and North America for two years. I then set my sites on travel, with an intense desire to live my life to the fullest, and my travels took me from my home state of Ohio to Alaska, Wisconsin, Colorado, Arizona, North Carolina, and finally to where I am now in Sonora, Mexico. My passion for life and new experiences is only matched by my love for writing, as every place and experience has filled me with a wonder that demands creative outlet. I've published several short stories and articles, and I'm a writer for an upcoming table-top RPG game. The military instilled in me a strong sense of professionalism and punctuality, and my good reputation with all the editors and creators I've worked with so far is something in which I take great pride. I would be delighted to expand my reputation, portfolio, and experiences by working with you to create the best story, article, script, or product possible. Let's make something special!
Project dependent. I prefer to be paid by the word, but on long projects I like being paid by milestones. All prices are negotiable, and I can work most days.
