Service Description

I am an experienced writer in both fiction and non-fiction and have a range of publishing credits to my name.

My fiction writing experience covers novels, novellas, short stories, plays, television scripts and poetry. My non-fiction publishing credits include academic writing, technical literature, biographies and research projects.

I pride myself on working with the utmost professionalism on every project and on providing absolute transparency in my work. My excellent feedback, qualifications and skills test results should give you the confidence to hire me for your next writing project.

I have written for clients all over the world, including O2, Tesco and TotalJobs as well as writing scripts for television commercials.

In addition, I operate as a professional grammar consultant and consult with companies on effective grammar and language usage.

I am proud to be an honourary member of the Queen's English Society, to which I was co-opted in 2008. Through my work with the QES I have helped to develop their website and English Academy. I am a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers and was featured in The Beer Writers Yearbook 2010-2011 - the definitive 'who's who' of beer writing.
