Overview

I have spent the past twenty years writing for both the academic world and general audiences. The process of developing my doctoral dissertation gave me plenty of scope for honing my research skills and presenting a complex subject in a well-crafted, engaging manner, and I have several of my own projects on the go for older children, and have started a novel for adults.

I have had several pieces (primarily academic) published, and over the past seven years have presented an additional 2,500 pages to audiences of all ages, whose regular...

Service Description

I know the value of respectful listening and careful communication, and am determined to have these form the core of all relationships, whether work or personal. I have excellent, well-tested time management skills; for the past ten years, among other things, my occupation has demanded successfully meeting an immovable, weekly deadline of researching and crafting a 1,500-word publication that would be not only informative and interesting, but also uplifting and encouraging. Integrity, honesty and efficiency, tempered by a sense of humour, are qualities I value.

I make sure that my down-to-earth "people skills" are constantly kept a priority, because I know that am also quite happy to slip away into in the realm of ideas and words. I thoroughly enjoy the "thrill of the hunt" promised by research, and entering new worlds opened up in the writing of fiction.

The teacher and philanthropist in me delights in helping others to succeed, to shine. I have always enjoyed helping to make the ideas of others become a reality and am glad when others do well and feel good about their own projects. I find there's nothing better than the satisfaction of digging in and working hard in order to complete a job on time and to expectations of others. I can promise that I will communicate with you and listen intently, until you feel your project has been thoroughly understood. And then I will make the success of your project a priority. When all is done according to order, I will be...
