Originally from the UK, I am now based in Victoria BC. An English graduate of the University of the West of England, I have been working as a freelance writer and editor for over ten years.
As a member of the Professional Editors Association of Vancouver Island I have worked with authors and students, editing and proofreading a variety of texts including magazine articles, website copy, fiction and academic papers, as well as writing a variety of commissioned copy. After a year as Editor-in-Chief of Seaside Magazine, I am now Editorial Director, overseeing the print magazine, social media assets and website. I also contribute two monthly columns to Seaside Magazine, which has a print run of 19,000, and a strong, loyal following.
Over many years working at an advertising agency I have also written large volumes of press releases, website copy, advertising copy and marketing materials. I'm interested in authored, co-authored or ghostwriting assignments. And am willing to undertake research, or write from provided notes.
