Please visit my website listed under my 'company name' below to find out more about what I can offer, and to read previous examples of my work.
I write regular articles and a monthly column for the leading county magazine in Surrey, as well as feature-length articles for a popular baby magazine and a (paid) online travel blog. I provide writing and press office support, including monthly columns in three regional magazines on behalf of the National Trust. I have also written room guides interpretation for the National Trust for visitors looking round the rooms of stately homes in Surrey.
In my spare time, I am writing my first children's book with the hope of eventual publication. Last year, I won a major national romantic story competition run by The Lady magazine in association with Mills and Boon.
