About me

Im a freelance writer, editor and proofreader with loads of experience in books, magazines, educational materials and corporate comms.

I’ve been freelancing from the Blue Mountains outside Sydney, Australia for around 10 years.

I love making words work and helping others to make their writing suit its purpose.

I have a degree in journalism and a postgraduate diploma in editing and publishing.

My publishing career began long, long ago, in the age of typesetters and dyeline proofs. I’ve had roles that include commissioning editor, subeditor, journalist, course writer, online content creator and print designer.

These days I work from my home office in the beautiful Blue Mountains near Sydney, with a cat in my in-tray and a dog at my feet. On a clear day I can see the city over a sea of eucalypts.

When I’m not writing or editing, I’m either reading or doing things with Guide Dogs pups – sometimes simultaneously.  I love learning new things. Right now it’s about AI-generated copy and the ins and outs of SEO copywriting.
