Service Description

As an experienced worker with words of 30 years' standing, I can write content for webpages, proofread your work, help with CVs/resumes, and provide articles on a wide variety of topics.

I have been published in Paradigm Shift magazine (reviews), Professional Secretary magazine (A Day in the Life, reports on branch events), and Spiritual Soul magazine (an article on Pat Life Therapy), as well as a small local publication in Norwich, UK (report on an event).

Several of my short stories have been shortlisted for writing competitions; one has been published; and my paranormal crime novel, Past Sins, was shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Association's Debut Dagger Award in 2003.

I also write poems and other one-off pieces, and am currently taking a course in becoming an accredited Bard.

I have proofread two books on spiritual subjects, and constantly practice this skill in proofreading my own work.
