About me

Are you struggling with your written content?

I can help by sorting out your writing for you. It can be difficult to look at your own stuff and see what’s working and what isn’t. Let’s face it, you usually realise it’s not working when you either get no customers, have no buyers of your book or some snarky ‘reviewer’ comments when you’re feeling your most vulnerable.

Don’t think you need to leave it that long before you seek professional help, it’s really not as complicated or scary as you think.

I’m a professional editor and writer who’ll work with you to make you look your best. Don’t worry if you don’t know where to start – a quick chat and we can soon create an action plan!

“Sara has been a great resource for our business.”

Martin Murray, Dunnet Bay Distillers
