Who the hell am I?

Are you struggling with your written content?

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 an Advanced Professional member of CIEP (the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading), and trained in copywriting and creative writing. I help businesses and authors get their story out there. Without stressing about the commas. I also write, proofread and edit for the award-winning Dunnet Bay Distillers and work with high profile companies through my work with Lily and Ferry Publications.

  • I’m proud to write for, compile and edit Lily Publication’s best-selling All Round Guide to the Isle of Man and their Island Kitchen cookery books.
  • I’ve worked with Cunard, P&O, Irish Ferries, Brittany Ferries and NorthLink (to name a few) through Ferry Publications, Europe’s leading publisher in the specialist field of ferry, cruise, ro-ro and the high-speed ferry industry. I know my way around maritime subjects – hopefully my barge-owner great-great grandad would be pleased.
  • When I’m not working you can find me in my local theatre – producing, publicising, helping with workshops for around 90 kids on a Friday night, and generally having fun.
  • Oh, and I really do have green hair

Business owners know the need for outsourcing. You can’t do it all or you’d never get your work done. My services, tailored around your needs, include: websites, marketing materials (brochures, flyers, etc.), internal publications, product labels, annual reports, white papers, events programmes, and press releases.

Authors know that to look your best you sometimes need help. Pop on over to my Author Services page to see how I can help you.
