Need a Writer?

Having qualified as a journalist in 1997, I'm fortunate enough to have made a career out of writing for a living full time. In that time I have written for most of the UK women's magazines and national papers and had 14 books published in my own name and have ghost written many books for other people. I am also now working for The Ghost Writing Company

Whether you have a story you wish to sell to a magazine, need a manuscript editing, need help finding an agent or a publisher, need website copy, need a book/script written, or need contacts in the industry, I can help.

 Below are a few reasons why I am qualified to write for you:

*I have been in the business of writing and publishing for over 20 years.

* I have had 14 books published.

* I know what sells and what doesn't.

* I know what publishers and editors want and what they don't want.

* I'm an award winning, bestselling author.

* I'm a national magazine columnist.

*I have written for hundreds of commercial publications.

*I have good relations with some of the top PR agencies. 

* Writing is my full-time job.

* I have ghost-written many books.

*I am a qualified journalist, proof reader, editor and copy writer.
