Service Description

I work with Brenda; she's a great proofreader and editor - nothing slips past her. Brenda and I are native English copy writers and editors based in Cyprus, a perfect location for across-time-zone business.

We make a formidable team: Bouncing ideas around, going to enormous lengths to research the subject, and ultimately reviewing our work critically so that you get the best.

I have been hands-on in sales, marketing and general management in the UK, Africa and the Pacific region. I know what makes businesses tick. I use my knowledge and experience to write material for companies, both large and small, covering a diverse range of industries.

And Brenda... well, before turning to creative copywriting, she taught English in international schools where English was not the first language. She has a special interest in English language use - and a keen eye gives her the ability to spot easily spelling, grammar and word-use errors.
