Service Description

I'm also a qualified broadcast journalist, I've been writing for newspapers, magazines and radio since 1985, fiction and non-fiction. I have 4 books published - a novel and four anthologies - and am just starting the first of three commissioned non-fictions. I've also written licensed activity annuals for pre-school to late teens.

My diary is usually booked at least 2 weeks in advance, with work pencilled in for at least a month. Always willing to negotiate in a genuine emergency, however.

I proof-read military and ancient history books and I edit historical fiction novels. I have also edited text books, educational non-fiction, and classroom resources.
