About Me

Words, books and stories have always been a huge part of my life. As a small child I loved reading way past my bed time and into the night, long after my mother had asked me to turn out the light. I love listening to stories, creating stories and passing them on again.

As an adult, my book, magazine or newspaper, iPad, iPhone and my trusty notepad and pen, accompany me wherever I go. The former offers me inspiration for my ideas; the later of my literary companions provides me with a space where I can jot down my ideas that come to me throughout the day and at night.

Over the years I have worked as an online producer, copywriter, content provider, content strategist and editor. Having co-written books for Penguin publishers, I write content for websites, content strategies, feature writing, newsletters plus creative writing and much more and over a number of different industries both in the UK and overseas.

Writing is me and I am writing. It is where I am most happy.
