Writing that you'll want to read!

  |   Municipality of Thinalion, Corfu

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $10

A female writer of "a certain age", I juggle my passion for the written word with being a wife and mother.

I work from home with my trusty broadband connection for company. (If you have ever lived in the Greek islands you'll understand that my tongue is just a little in my cheek as I write that).

Whilst this might not sound like a recipe for success, it does have a positive side. I have over 20 years of writing experience under my belt, most of it report and assessment work for a government department, so I know all about precision...

Though at my happiest working on human interest articles, I am just as thorough and professional when working in other aspects of writing - whatever the subject matter may be.

I write articles and features for the Anglo/Greek womens magazine, 'Nisea' published in Corfu where I live, and am keen to undertake more online writing.

I have been writing a personal blog since 2007. Based on my experiences and observations of life in a small Corfiot hill village, it has in the last few months attracted interest and many positive comments from over 5000 readers throughout Europe and beyond.
