Service Description

My vision is to provide innovative and original work, with a fast turnaround and at an affordable rate.

If you require excellent copy from a native British journalist who guarantees to deliver on time then look no further.

I have excellent research skills. If you want someone who doesn't just churn out the same old boring copy then I am the one for your project. I have years of experience of editing scripts and articles, choosing a headline and angle and making it exciting. I can give a topic a new edge that will bring your customers and readers back for more.

I can write about most topics. Areas of expertise include: Nutrition and diet (I am studying for my nutritional therapy degree), complementary therapy, massage, health, parenting, relationships, TV, working in TV, pets, weddings, South America (I lived there for 3 years), Spain and the Canary Islands... the list is endless!

I provide a professional freelance writing service, including Spanish translation, audiotyping, re-writes, copywriting, article research and writing.
