Thank you for visiting hylaridenour.com! I’m a freelance writer and aspiring author living in sunny Southern California. Here you will find information about my freelance services (rates, promotions, etc.), social links, and my blog where I share my thoughts on writing-related topics as well as sobriety, my CrossFit journey, and a variety of other random subjects.

Have a look around and let’s connect! You can receive notifications about updates by electing to “follow” me using the link on the banner found on the lower right side.

I’ve added information about a new project that I’m hoping to bring to fruition. Bad Vibes, The Journal, is the perfect place to bitch about your bad day!

Bad Vibes, The Jouranl


It’s been a busy few months! I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work on some great projects for businesses and organizations across the country! (In the process, I’ve completely fallen in love with Upstate New York!)

I’m currently taking new clients and projects so if you or someone you know needs writing or social media content services, please reach out! You can see a full list of the services I offer HERE.


The average person spends nearly TWO hours every day on social media sites. As a small business owner, how are you using that statistic to your advantage?

I offer social media content planning and management to help you connect with your clients. Contact me to learn more.


This is not recent news per se but I’m honored to be working with two incredibly talented women who, earlier this year, joined together to form Deep Sea Pictures, a multimedia production company. They offer a number of services including website design, social media management, and full-service video and film production. Give their website a look!

Learning new tricks.

Spread the Word!!

If you know a business owner that could benefit from hiring a writer to help produce content for their website or social media accounts, blog posts, newsletters, client email, descriptions for products or services, or any other content needs, would you please put us in touch?

My goal this year is to build my business through word-of-mouth and referrals. I am offering an incentive for each qualified referral I receive (i.e., the referral leads to paid business). If you refer a new client to me who enlists my services, I’ll send you a $20.00 Starbucks gift card as a thank you!
