Biography

I'm a news and features journalist with more than 30 years' experience working for regional and daily newspapers, and women's magazines.
I've covered every subject under the sun - from hard crime to soft features, health, fun, human interest, comment, politics and all in between.
I've written front page splashes, hundreds of double page spreads, comment pieces, celebrity interviews, reviews and daily newspaper page leads.
Highly experienced with a strong reputation as an accurate and fast writer - shortlisted Scottish Feature of the Year 2014.
I'm also a former news and features editor for one of Scotland's leading regional evening newspapers.
I currently work on a freelance basis with Skip Hire Magazine, the UK journal for the waste industry, producing a business-related feature every month, and with InMotion transport technology website, which highlights developments in the automobile industry.

As a freelance copywriter, I've produced copy and content for a variety of brands, including Sainsbury's Bank, Scottish Gas, ACCA, Scottish Government, GoCompare, Virgin Trains, Flybe and dozens of others.

I also work with Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland in a media support and training role.
