I have two main strings to my bow:
- technical writing and editing
- fiction writing and editing.
Until recent redundancy I was Technical Editor for a computer network serving the UK education sector. My primary duty was to be briefed by technical specialists and communicate this clearly to less technically-minded readers, whether through web pages, case studies, profile interviews, brochures, technical guides, the quarterly company newsletter or any combination of these. As secondary duties I would attend meetings to write up reports; travel to interview industry figures to profile in the newsletter; help with preparation of marketing material; tidy up the English of non-native writers; and work as general company copy editor, proof reader, and writer for odd projects.
Parallel to this I am the author of four novels and 18 short stories professionally published under my own name, and ghost writer of several more novels and story collections in a variety of genres, working to strict deadlines and word counts. My ghostwriting CV is available upon request.
