I'm a ghost writer, freelancer and editor, with the experience to take your story to the next level.
I most love to work with a person who has a story to tell or a book half-written but who doesn't know what to do next. I'm a hand-holder who helps you through every step. If that's you, let's chat. I'm honest and encouraging and I do what it takes to get your story on the page.
I love to help people who've got an idea - or something to share with the world - and get them set up with websites, social media pages and a plan to get going.
As well as that, I love to mentor young writers - teenagers and young adults. You've taken music lessons and sports coaching before, so why not work with a writer?
I began the boutique publisher, Firewheel Press, as a vehicle for the publication of adult colouring books.
As the sub-editor of the elegant SOHI magazine, I worked with paid staff and volunteers to gather copy, edit and keep an eye on layout quirks.
I have been editing and writing in a freelance capacity since 2009, working on a variety of different projects, of all different sizes. See my website for more details:
In charge of writing, producing and editing all the written publicity materials for this busy organisation, with a mailing list of over 10,000 members. I sourced copy and edited a quarterly magazine, plus a monthly journal and various other documents.
