I create engaging content for my clients, commissioning the best travel and lifestyle writers, as well as writing lively and accurate text myself.
With almost 40 years’ experience as a journalist, writing and producing publications, I can deliver top-quality online and print content from initial concept to final proof. I can be engaged on both a regular and project basis.
My recent work includes devising, researching, writing and voicing a self-guided audio trail of Chester’s historic architecture, Discover The Rows. I have just commissioned and edited Congham’s Golf Coast, the latest in a suite of visitor trails that I have devised for my client Congham Hall Hotel in Norfolk. Recent guest articles I have written on behalf of clients for the press, include a feature on Jodrell Bank for Cheshire Living magazine.
