As a freelancer…
I am a successful freelance writer which I combined with a career in teaching from which I have recently retired. I have ghost-written everything from Autobiography, speeches (Including for weddings) , eulogies together with the more mundane stock in trade of a writer: information leaflets, web-pages, articles for publication on subjects as wide ranging as decommissioning nuclear reactors to the psychology of narcissistic personality disorder.
She is versatile..
I am extremely versatile have had articles published in everything from “The Times” newspaper, The Health Services Journal to writing reviews for our local newspaper. I also wrote a little book called “This Is For You Mum!” and I have even had original poetry published. I enjoy writing first-person reflective work e.g. topics such as Autism, mental health both of which I have family experience of as a carer.
Last year I was asked by two delightful young women to write their grandad’s autobiography for his 80th birthday. It was the best job a freelancer could wish for. I drove up to Newcastle and spent the day with that lovely family. Over the next couple of weeks I wrote the document you can see with their permission on this site here The whole process made us all feel great. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to see if I can make a small business out of it
While my preference from here on is to write biographical and autobiographical materials I am willing to consider other, interesting projects. I have excellent academic credentials including 4 degrees in a range of subjects including business, psychology, sociology and biology. My PhD research was in Quaternary entomology.
