I like to write. I've been a copywriter for 25 years. I don't often write about myself, but by way of introduction (and since I'm new to this part of the country) I'll describe who I am. I'm a humanist who is happiest in a gathering, but I cherish my time alone too. I'm a nature addict. I'm a cyclist, a swimmer and a frequent walker. I'm an eldest child, and I'm sensitive about people and issues. I feel things, and I think that makes me a good writer. I can get emotional about closing a bank account, for goodness sake! I'm curious too - about people, places and things. I adore great design, am in awe of people who do it and I get a lot of pleasure from working with them.
I've been fortunate to be involved with some wonderful brands and great people over the years. As well as copywriting (or corporate writing as its sometimes called) I create publicity for clients, and I do a little feature writing. My travel stories have been published in inflight magazines, and I've also written a feature film script as my wish fulfilment project. Lately, I've commenced writing peoples' life memoirs and this is by far my new favourite thing! Having people give you such access to themselves is a treat, and EVERYONE has such an interesting story to be told, I think. If you'd like to meet me to discuss your project, get in touch and we'll arrange to catch up.
