With a degree in Journalism and 15+ years of experience in media, including marketing, TV, newspapers and PR, I am well-placed to help when it comes to writing, proofing or editing.

Nothing excites me more than a book project! So far, I've edited a sales advice book for a private client as well as helped to completely revise an astrology reference classic for the Urania Trust. I have also written a technical user manual for a software package on behalf of a London publisher, as well as a commemorative photographic book for The Aspinall Foundation.

I love designing book overs and layouts using Photoshop and am quite a pro at Kindle/ePub conversion. Having learnt a lot about self publishing, I love nothing more than using my knowledge & expertise to help others get published.

My speciality is technical writing and marketing comms, but I also have experience of writing articles across a wide spectrum of sectors, from IT and business to property, the arts, travel, health, bridal and women's issues.

I also do website creation using Wordpress/Wix templates and SEO writing. If you need help creating a simple but effective website from scratch with a limited budget, I can help!


My background is TV journalism and current affairs research – I have worked for the South African national broadcaster, as well as a national newspaper group in London.

Not so long ago, I did some stock footage and archive research for a Sarah Brightman retrospective DVD; and I also helped to secure interviews and case studies for a 2015 documentary on Princess Diana that was broadcast on NHK in Japan.
