As a UK-based copywriter, journalist and editor I provide specialist writing services to businesses and public sector organisations that need high-quality written communications and marketing.
I started out as a journalist working on local newspapers, and later in a press agency providing material for the nationals. I have also worked as an in-house copywriter for advertising agencies and as an editor in a non-fiction publishing company.

Clear English – anywhere in the world
I’m based in England, UK, but provide services world-wide. I’ve written extensively for clients as far afield as France, the USA, Canada, Ghana, China and Australia.
Better than a copywriting agency
I’m not a copywriting agency (or trying to look like one). I do all the work myself. If you need a team of writers, you may want to contact one of the larger agencies. I can even make some recommendations (although not totally unbiased, as I do quite a lot of work through several of them).
Of course, because I’m not a writing agency, I can offer:
- A more personal copywriting service
- The expert copywriter doing the work
- One writer who really gets to know you and your organisation
- A versatile copywriter who can meet all your copy requirements
- Lower overheads – better value
Above all, I aim to provide a responsive service that is both professional and friendly. If you’d like to know more, give me a call.
