I enjoy communicating complex concepts in plain English and clients say I do this well. I adapt my style to suit your audience, preferring to write in crisp, business-like English (with humour where appropriate). I believe it's important for readers to enjoy an article otherwise they won't bother reading it to the end - wasting my time and your money.
Based in Devon, I work virtually for clients all over the UK and have recently written several series of blog articles: 50 for an educational software developer and 30 for an IT support company.
With experience of writing, editing and proofreading in the corporate world - at British Airways, Baker & McKenzie & Galileo UK - and as a freelance - for The Business Magazine, North Devon Journal, Internet Works and corporate clients - I write on a variety of business topics, especially IT, internet, technical, manufacturing and training. I co-ordinated The Business Magazine's 20-page legal supplement for five years.
With a strong interest in theatre and performance (as a published playwright), I am also undertaking more arts and entertainment projects.
I write and research news, features, press releases and case studies, and have edited, laid out and proofed entire projects, including monthly magazines, legal books and supplements, employee newsletters and handbooks. I also write a lot for web sites - having perfected this while creating a 7,000 page Prestel site for BA in 1985 - we were too far ahead of ourselves!
From November 2009 to February 2017, I was freelance Business Editor of the North Devon Journal, providing two tabloid pages of news and articles each week. This included providing dedicated media coverage of the area's annual Apprenticeship Campaigns. I also developed the categories, suggested judges, sat on the judging panel and co-presented the newspaper's annual business awards for five years.
I have a degree in English and Latin, and am currently studying part-time for my MA in History with Northumbria University.
I'm more interested in getting the job done than in hospitality - the more free time I have to walk in the countryside, the better. But I am sociable and enjoy working with people I like.
