Welcome! I'm Linda Wasmer Andrews, a freelance writer with a master's degree in health psychology. My writing about medicine, health care, wellness, and mental health is always tailored to the needs of readers, who may be:

  • Patients with chronic health conditions

  • People over age 65

  • Pregnant women and parents

  • Employees participating in an EAP

  • Adults with low literacy levels

  • Anyone seeking a healthier, happier life

Whether you're the editor of a magazine or the content strategy manager for a website, I can create reliable, relatable content that's tailored to your target audience.

Readable Writing

One of my strengths is writing in plain language without talking down to readers. I have decades of experience at translating complex medical information into conversational text with actionable tips.

Careful Fact-Checking

Another of my strong points is rigorous sourcing. I scour the most current, authoritative sources, including peer-reviewed medical journals and the websites of government agencies, medical associations, and leading patient advocacy groups. Then I double- and triple-check every fact. Typically, subject matter experts are also involved as interviewees and/or medical reviewers.

Engaging Content

Getting the facts straight is only half of my job, however. The other half is motivating people to actually read and act upon what I've written. My background in psychology helps me address not only what people need to know, but also how they may feel about it. A compassionate voice and creative storytelling can draw in readers and encourage them to keep reading.

Frequent Topics

I write about a wide range of health, medical, and mental heath topics, including:

  • Managing the health risks and emotional stress associated with Covid-19

  • Living well with chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and asthma

  • Fostering health through diet, physical activity, sleep, and stress management

  • Enhancing well-being through mindfulness and connecting with nature

Questions or suggestions? Drop me a line.

I look forward to hearing from you!
