I am Oxbridge educated, well-read, rigorous and reliable, and bring essential common sense to any task.
I write short stories for pleasure and won the Andrew Groves Short Story Prize (2010).
As a lawyer and when working for myself a lot of my work involved preparing lengthy documents, such as company handbooks, staff manuals, contracts, letters of advice; also advising HR departments on recruitment.
I joined PPH some time ago but was then side-tracked into another venture. I now have time to enjoy working in the sun this summer, supervised by two cats. Hobbies, which help my working interests, include anything craft-oriented, cookery, music, literature and gardening.
I am keen to prove myself to PPH clients and will be willing to go the extra distance to ensure that I build a good reputation.
