I have been published in The Australian Farm Journal; The Australian Property Investor; Early Years Educator (UK); Dorking National Childbirth Trust Magazine

Ghost writer:
My clients have included the MD of an international management consulting firm – for whom I wrote business magazine articles – and an Australian property company for whom I wrote a book on investment strategy.

I have extensive editing experience having, amongst other smaller assignments, led a virtual team to edit two 105,000+ww books for a Kenyan client. Copy for these was written by English Second Language speakers, which made the task particularly challenging.

Writers’ mentor:
I support and mentor other writers, assisting them by focussing on:
• meeting deadlines
• motivation
• grammar and spelling
• clear writing
• creative expression
• logical story lines
• plain English

English language tutoring:
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English and Drama, and a Post-Graduate Higher Diploma of Education, also in English and Drama. While practicing as a schoolteacher, I developed and co-wrote a grammar textbook.

I offer corporate clients one-on-one tuition to develop excellent business writing skills with a focus on clear, easy-to-read reports/letters with immaculate grammar and spelling.
