Service Description

I'm here for clients who need excellent writing that reflects their brand image, whether that's online or in print, in ebooks or website content. I've written permanent web content, like 'about us' pages, blog posts, articles and magazine journalism, and I do content management and academic counseling too.

If you're interested in health and fitness related material, I've written ebooks on the subject, copy for gym websites and innumerable blog posts, and am a regular contributor to SteadyHealth.com, taking from research in journals and blogs with one hand, and from my own 10+ years of experience with the other.

If you're looking for financial and real estate journalism, I've written for Oryx, the Qatari Airlines inflight magazine, as well as for several websites including Thespanishbrick.com, Property-Abroad.com and OverseasPropertyMall.com.

If your interest lies in sales copy or evergreen website content, I've written everything from product descriptions of Honda motorcycle parts to sales copy for running machines. My most recent project, just completed, was writing the whole website for Friendstogethersheffield.com.

Maybe you have something you need translating. I translate Spanish and Swedish to English, though I can't do the other way around (yet!). My most recent Spanish translation project was for Jamonprive.com, all of whose English-language content is my work. My biggest Swedish-English project was translating a book on the psychology of sleep deprivation!...
