Overview

Tearing your hair out on your publication?

I have 25 years’ experience writing, 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.

I specialise in fiction, non fiction, health, New Age, cookery, memoir, biography, technical and illustrated publications. I took my skills to the corporate world and launched ground-breaking digital publications. Now as a consultant I've 'deep-dived' into academic publishing, glammed it up at ad agencies and fast-tracked content for medical and health care. My latest project has been writing online course content for a women's executive community.

Not sure what you need? Pick me! Have an idea but lack the time? Pick me!

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.

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.
