Service Description

As former travel agent I have a passion for both travel and travel writing. My own travel experience, as well as experience in the industry, has equipped me with a wealth of information and given me a broad view of the world and the cultures that make up the human race. I have used a long-drop toilet in the middle of Africa, stood on a glacier in Canada, eaten dried mopani worms in Zimbabwe and slept under the stars in Botswana. There are few things that excite me as much as travel writing does.

I have a distinct but versatile style of writing, specializing in areas of travel, parenting, interior decorating and all things "green". While I am enthusiastic about my areas of specialization, I will gladly take on other writing projects with zeal. I will not close the project until you the client are completely satisfied.

I have experience in a variety of types of writing including but not limited to:

Web content: article-based, keyword-rich and HTML

Academic writing: research articles and ebooks

E-books: manuals and guides

Creative writing

Editing and proofreading

If you have any queries regarding the services I offer please do not hesitate to contact me.
