Service Description

Conscientious, professional and experienced, I am a perfectionist. I guarantee the work is not completed until you, the customer, are completely satisfied. I want your repeat business!

Many happy clients have given me excellent feedback and go on to become long-term repeat clients, which is the best possible reference. I have the experience, dedication and skills to create what you require, from humorous blog to factual handbook.

Travel writing is my forte. I have traveled the world and lived in many exotic places. My experiences have given me a broad view of the world and of the many facets of the human race. Freelance writing is my full-time profession and I am happy to research and write from personal experience and from my travel journals.

I have written for many prestigious magazines including Geneva Today, Miami Social Affairs, South China Morning Post, Style magazine and Porsche Post, and have completed a number of commissioned short articles on real estate in the Republic of Panama.

I am web literate and understand the importance of keywords and SEO. My English grammar, spelling and literary skills are the best. I can write persuasive sales letters and am experienced in autoresponses and press releases. Editing and proofreading projects are also welcome.

I write everything myself - no passing jobs on to staff and friends.
