With nearly fifteen years of experience as a writer and editor, former attorney Joanne Liu covers many topics—such as history, banking, real estate, tax, travel, health, and law—for consumer magazines, trade journals, online news sites, and companies. She is the author of several books, including Barbed Wire: The Fence That Changed the West (Mountain Press, 2009), which details barbed wire’s role in American West settlement. Her work has been published in The History Channel Magazine, Credit Union BUSINESS Magazine, Spa Magazine, MotorHome Magazine, among others.

In her freelance career, she has taken on varying tasks—as magazine associate editor, monthly columnist, and director of communications—and has never missed a deadline. She provides editing services, and will edit just about anything: blogs, nonfiction and fiction manuscripts, investment newsletters, market reports, third-party independent studies, and more.
