Welcome!

Words. In an age of information, the way we use the written word has never been more important. Whether you have a story to tell, a book to write, a report to compile, or a thesis to draft, I can help – with writing it for you, coaching you as you write it yourself, or editing and proofreading the work you’ve already produced.

In a nutshell, I produce content – for websites, traditional media, companies and communicators. Or I can take the content you’ve tried to produce and improve it, turning it into something that is both effective and easy to read.

I’m a trained journalist, based in Johannesburg, and I have many years of experience writing content for many genres, so I have mastered the art – and craft – of writing in a way that is engaging, warm, clear and concise. I can be businesslike or informal, playful or serious, academic or conversational. Please feel free to browse and drop me a line if you want to talk business.

If you need words, I can write them.

About

Writing

For many years my official title has been ‘health journalist’, but I have written many feature articles for newspapers and magazines on a variety of topics, with health really being a special interest.

Writing Coaching

One of the best ways to learn to write well is through one-on-one coaching. Bring me that document you’re struggling with, and we’ll write it together.

Business Writing Training

I’ve developed a number of business writing modules for a local writing school, Allaboutwriting, because – like so many consumers – I’ve been on the receiving end of some pretty diabolical business communication.

Books

This is not your usual recipe book. In fact, it’s less of a recipe book and more of a family feeding plan that takes the guesswork out of planning and cooking family dinners.
