Here are a few of the projects I've worked on. Note that some of my work cannot be shared here (due to NDA agreements). With my extensive experience in technical communication, writing and editing, and site management, I'm sure that can help with your project, too.
I can produce the documentation deliverables you need, including user and reference guides, online help and documentation, and training and tutorials.
I excel in making the complex easy to understand.
User Guides, Reference Manuals, and Online Help
I have developed numerous user guides and reference manuals for software products. I emphasize clear, concise, and consistent writing. In addition to traditional printed/paper documentation, I am able to produce online documentation and context-sensitive online help by using single-sourcing and multi-sourcing content management techniques.
In 2010, I self-published , the first‑ever reference guide for Tiki, and open source CMS project, followed by Tiki Essentials : A beginner's guide. Both books are available as a paperback and ebook. Tiki for Smarties
