Me, me, me and my copy

I'm based in Southampton, although my clients stretch far and wide and into mainland Europe. I'm always happy to visit to take a brief, keep in touch and work alongside you if the project demands it. If you're a way away or have a deadline that's driving your brief, rest assured that I never allow time or distance to stand in the way of a cracking piece of copy.


I have a BA Honours (First) in English Language and Literature and an MA in Creative Writing from University of Southampton. My first piece of proper fiction is currently sitting on a publisher's desk, just waiting for a big red tick.


You'll have gathered that I'm a committed copywriter. In short, I'm picky about words and grammar and if it takes me all night to write the perfect paragraph, then so be it. Lucky then, that the work I do is undertaken on a fixed fee basis. I don't charge extra for meetings, briefings, research or amendments to my first draft within reason!


I've worked in diverse markets from healthcare, insurance, technology, IT, property, MoD, local government and HR and I always go beyond the call of duty when it comes to researching those markets. It's a 'need to know' thing.

Talk to me about editorials, brochures, SEO website copy, e-shots, ad campaigns, case studies, white papers, newsletters, blogs and grammatical dos and don'ts (split any infinitives lately?)....
