I write novels, non-fiction, (auto)biographies, screenplays, content, tenders and funding proposals for clients. I am also a qualified trainer and coach, using NLP.
I work flexibly and creatively to provide the writing you want - developing your story, script or project, in your own tone and voice, to your own specifications. I'm not precious about my writing, like some writers. It's your work, after all! I aim only to delight you.
I'm also a trainer, coach and consultant in NLP. I specialise in personal development - helping people to be the best they can be - removing barriers to success and building confidence. I also work in education and personal / organisational development. I'm an INLPTA accredited NLP Trainer and Master Practitioner, a qualified Life Coach (AUNLP) and a member of ANLP.
In addition, I am spiritual (not religious), in a very down-to-earth way. I am a reiki practitioner & angelic reiki master teacher, particularly interested in channeling / inspiration. I help to oversee a MBS centre, supporting people with their personal and spiritual development.
I'm highly skilled, reliable and proficient and have a number of delighted clients - for autobiographies, fiction (literary, horror, comedy, romance, fantasy), non-fiction, self-help, and screenwriting (movie, TV and theatre scripts). I also write funding bids, since I have years of experience in writing bids, tenders and proposals in statutory, charitable and voluntary sector fundraising.

I am a certified NLP Trainer, and my practice in Neurolinguistic programming gives the added value of using language extremely effectively to achieve your desired results, and press all the right buttons.
