I worked in publishing going on seven years before I decided to enter self-employment. There were a number of factors that played into this decision, one of them being that I wanted more time to focus on a novel that I have begun writing. Fiction is my main passion in life. In 2010 I had a novella published called Guinea Pig and in February 2012 I started a short fiction blog on WordPress, which is called Huddled In Dirt.
During my career I was able to gain promotion to the position of editor of a publishing house in London whereby I was responsible for overseeing the completion of eight bi-annual consumer publications, each of which varied in subject matter and was guest-edited by a celebrity. This demonstrates how dependable, hardworking, meticulous, organised and efficient I am with my work.
