Further information:

A former newspaper reporter, I run a home-based business providing editorial, DTP and project management services to academic organisations, blue-chip companies, charities, government bodies, PR consultancies, design agencies and publishers.

I can write articles and features with flair, speed, clarity and accuracy, and in different styles for different media – in print or online.

During my career I have interviewed people from all walks of life in all kinds of environments, from teenage gang members on inner-city estates to captains of industry in City boardrooms. I can provide images and illustrations for my articles using my picture editing skills or by taking my own photographs.

In addition, I have extensive experience of editing and designing reports, newsletters, magazines and books in a wide variety of fields. I also help clients to launch new titles/websites or relaunch existing ones. Several corporate publications written and/or edited by me have been commended in the Communicators in Business Awards.

I travel all over the UK and further afield to carry out reporting assignments. My office is located in the heart of the country in Northamptonshire, just over an hour by train from central London.

If you would like me to send you further information, a quote for my services, examples of my work or references, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
