I am a freelance blogger, writer and copywriter, proof-reader, editor, crossword compiler and publisher. I write fiction and non-fiction, under my own name and as a ghostwriter and freelancer. My fiction work ranges from children's stories to challenging horror and sci-fi, and I have been commissioned to write for specific situations and events. I've been variously compared to Paul Auster, Douglas Adams, and Roald Dahl. I've written two novels, an award-winning children's book, and an anthology. I've had over 50 short stories published online and in magazines.

Before switching to writing, I worked in print and media for 25 years. My non-fiction work includes blogs, sales, marketing and promotional copy. I also write poems, stories and books for private clients. My published work is available via the bookshelf on my blog, along with my publishing schedule.

I pimp myself in the gig economy as a writer for hire and I can be stalked or harassed via my social network links. For specific enquiries and for private commissions, please mail me: I do bite.
