Overview

Tearing your hair out on your publication?


I have 25 years’ experience writing, ghostwriting, editing, proofreading and publishing. I'm expert in end-to-end creation of books, journals, online and digital publications. I was trained by the best at Pan Macmillan and Random House book publishers. Some of my works are featured below.


I specialise in fiction, non fiction, health, true crime. New Age, cookery, memoir, biography, health care, legal, technical, web content, and illustrated publications.


I can give your book developmental and copy editing. I can help you write your book. I can write your blogs and social media content. My latest project has been writing digital content for a women's executive community.


Not sure what you need? Have an idea but lack the time? Let’s talk!


I have a strong track record in author relationships and am an excellent project manager. You may need some help getting started or finishing off that manuscript. Perhaps you need to know the best way to present your work online or to a prospective agent or editor. I work collaboratively with you, and ensure you will always know what's happening and what's next.

Work experience

Self-employed

Jun, 2018 — Present

Publishing, writing and content services on a contract basis. I provide end to end project management to a range of sectors. My mission is to take a client's 'pain' away by managing people, content, systems and arriving at solutions for doing things better. Ideally, once briefed I can work autonomously, providing updates and queries on a weekly basis.

It was equally always encourag...
