Service Description

Freelance writer with 10 years experience in the industry. I began my writing career as an expert in the equestrian field, creating instructional 'how-to' articles for monthly magazines. Becoming a published writer allowed me to branch into other areas of interest and to develop highly effective interviewing and research skills. I now contribute to a variety of general interest magazines on subjects as varied as sheepdog trialling, hang gliding, and mohair sock production.
My aim is to specialise in ghost writing, particularly non-fiction and creative non-fiction titles. To date, I've successfully captured the 'voice' of a golf professional, a success coach, a personal development guru, a multi-millionaire, and an internationally renowned sports psychologist; and told the personal life stories of a fascinating mix of people from all walks of life.
I'm very flexible in my approach but I've found my preferred method of work to be a combination of email, audio files, and Skype conversations.
