Overview

I've written professionally for over 20 years. Started as a copywriter at a regional agency, and was headhunted by a London one. I've written brochures for global businesses, websites for start-ups, speeches for sales conferences, drama for training purposes, recruitment and product ads, and been involved in branding.

I studied scriptwriting at the London Cartoon Centre and was approached by Marvel Comics. My first film treatment won me a meeting with Tim Bevan, the UK's most powerful producer thanks to the success of Four Weddings And A...

Service Description

I write copy for adverts, for brochures, for websites, blogs, and more. To date I have worked with clients in sectors including retail, pharma, high tech, leisure, housing and charity.

The style I write in is determined by the needs of the project. That can mean serious or friendly, formal or welcoming, technical or general...whatever is appropriate for the job.

I have worked as a script editor and also with prose writers to develop their potential. One client won an award for her first novel. I have an understanding of structure, genre, style, and other issues involved in honing a story.

In the last couple of years I have scripted original drama and prose for clients internationally.

I am happy to talk with clients on Skype or by phone.
