About

 


I’ve been working with words for more than 20 years. From corporate multinationals to indie publishers, I’ve been around the block. More than once. From the painfully hip Dazed & Confused to the arthritic hip of The Daily Telegraph in just 20 short years, my career path really does show that you eventually turn into your dad. It also shows that I’ve worked with some of the biggest names in the publishing industry, and collectively my work has been read by millions of people around the world (especially this one).

My background is in illustrated non-fiction in various roles – sub-editor, copy-editor, proof-reader, copywriter, editor and managing editor – but I also work with authors and publishers to help them with their fiction titles, either in print or as eBooks. Over the years I have worked on part-works, newspapers, magazines, books, apps, eBooks, websites and all sorts of marketing material. I’m always looking for new challenges.
