Service Description

I don't crave recognition; I write because I love it. I love the English language and always have. I chose to study Linguistics at university because words are my passion.

It's rare to find a writer who can deliver on both style/accuracy and content. I am that writer. I can edit or sub-edit your words; I can put word-flesh on your book-skeleton; I can write from your "lightbulb" moment. You can be confident of stylish, original material, free from errors and hackneyed phrasing.

As I have experience of translation, editing and original work, I can write in your voice, entirely appropriate for your readership. My education and professional experience are a cut above; but I am a well-rounded human being who understands heartbreak and ecstasy.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have the perfect challenge for me and think we could work well together. I look forward to hearing from you.
