I am an experienced freelance journalist based just outside Exeter in Devon. I can confidently and professionally meet editorial objectives and have excellent written skills gained through both training and experience with a variety of publications and editors.

I am available for commissions and can be contacted via email or phone – please see above. I'm also available for copywriting work, ensuring that a strong, clear message is delivered to your particular target audience, be it online or in print.

I have written for The BBC, The Guardian, LRQA, Practical Parenting, OneUp Magazine, FQ, The Western Daily Press and The Western Morning News – please scroll down for work samples.

Update – Short Stories

As of 2015, I have also begun writing short stories. For further details, please email.
