As a freelancer…
Over the last two years I have built on my success as a freelance writer which I used to combine with a career in teaching from which I retired early a couple of years ago.
Much of my work has been long- form business and health/psychology writing some for professional development and I have formed long- term relationships with a couple of clients as a result. I have however, also 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 hypnotherapy and how best to approach Facebook advertising
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.
In 2015 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. I have since ghost written 3 autobiographies, the last one for publication.
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 an MBA with distinction, psychology, sociology and biology. My PhD research was in Quaternary entomology and I am an NLP accredited practitioner.
