Two books I have written are linked to Cornwall: Poldark’s Cornwall and Rosamunde Pilcher’s Cornwall.

Again for Pitkin, I have written exclusive guides for visitor sites, including Salisbury Cathedral, St Martin in the Fields and The Piece Hall (Halifax). I have also worked with other authors and edited many similar books for Pitkin.

Children’s Books

I have written a series of illustrated children’s books for a client, working in collaboration with illustrator Sophie Hill of Design Ark. This involved inventing and bringing to life a character, Barry Bear.

Magazines, Newsletters, Brochures

For five years I researched, wrote and edited the quarterly In Newbury magazine, and wrote a monthly newsletter for Newbury BID (Business Improvement District).

I have been Print Editor for the prestigious international Newbury Spring Festival, writing and producing both their sales brochure and souvenir guide.


 

Blogs and Websites

I have written blogs for two BIDs (Business Improvement Districts) and Luna Boutique, and provided copy for websites for clients of Apple Print & Creative.

Education

During careers in the Training Department at Cheltenham & Gloucester Building Society/Lloyds TSB and Basingstoke College of Technology, I was responsible for writing, editing and producing a variety of distance learning materials. As well as many paper-based solutions, I also wrote scripts for audio, video and computer-based training
