Copy. Content. Consultancy.

About Me

I am a journalist with over 15 years experience; ranging from online outlets to national newspapers via glossy magazines. Whether it’s producing passionate copy for an opinion piece, interviewing experts and delivering an accurate yet engaging health feature; or troubleshooting copy and making dull words sparkle for business clients, words are what I do.

I started my career on the Features team of a supplement at a national Sunday paper; from there I became a celebrity writer then celebrity editor and moved into women’s magazine with roles at Woman, Bella and Good Housekeeping. By going freelance I have added health, lifestyle and parenting features to my portfolio as well as re-writing website copy, formulating press releases and advising PR agencies on strategy.

If making your product shout about itself is your objective, then my skills could be what you need. If you are putting press material together then I can tell you with firsthand experience what journalists do and don’t like to receive; how to link your projects to a current trend and make your words stand out on the page or screen.

I can re-write existing marketing copy to make it sparkle, sell your business or simply sound better.
