As an in-house marketing professional, I wrote truckloads of selling copy, for print and the Web, for publishing brands as diverse as Oxford University Press and tech-specialists QUE and SAMS Publishing. I have since written copy for a number of freelance clients, of all sizes, including: cover and promotional blurb for the world’s #1 self-help brand and copy and case material for Feast, an innovative London events company, among others.
I have also written corporate white papers, briefings, professional magazine articles and app content under strict NDA restrictions. If you have a project like that, I’ll be happy to hear from you confidentially. I’m happy to let my commercial copywriting clients do the talking: if you’d also like testimonials, just contact me.
I’m also an experienced editor, and can tailor my edit to what you need: whether that’s a light-touch proofread of an article or briefing, on paper or screen, or a major rewrite and restructure job for a whole book. I’ve worked on mass-market travel and fiction, all kinds of professional and technical titles, phrasebooks, and academic social sciences and humanities. And I never miss a deadline.
I worked with authors and editors to turn several bestselling For Dummies handbooks into these two market-leading compendiums. I was on board from the start of a journey that saw these two Frommer’s travel guidebook series develop from concept to award-winning finished product. From researching the market to getting my hands dirty with text on destinations as diverse as Scotland and Cuba, I’ve been involved all the way.
In addition to the projects detailed above, my clients have included UNDP, the Small Arms Survey, Simon and Schuster, Aston University and King’s College London. If you’d like testimonials, just contact me.
