About me

I have been a working writer all my professional life, and a freelance since the 1980s. My specialist topics are:






   family life


My reputation is built on reliable production of accurate copy, to a deadline agreed with you, the client. I am versatile and skilled in a variety of styles, so you can be sure your audience will find my work accessible. Many of my clients have commissioned me again and again, over several years, and most of my new clients come to me as a result of recommendation.

I have a degree in Italian Studies (from University of Reading, 1975), and a Level II City&Guilds teaching (adults) qualification (2005). I gained an MSc (Health Sciences) from Northumbria University (2010). I have a grown-up family, and grandchildren. I live in Newcastle upon Tyne and in the South of France.
