Combining NCTJ-approved journalism training with six years' experience running the press office at Plain English Campaign, I am particularly skilled at writing on a variety of subjects in a clear and concise manner. I can explain complicated subjects in a simple but accurate way that is appropriate to the intended audience.

I am highly skilled in general writing including web content and ghostwriting. My specialist subjects include:

I am also heavily experienced in writing public relations material such as newsletters and press releases. Although I concentrate mainly on print at the moment, I have given more than 500 radio and television interviews.

As well as examples of my work, this site contains my formal employment, education and personal details.

If you are interested in commissioning me for any writing projects, you can e-mail me at or call me on 07963 859058.
