I'll help you find the right words


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.

I’ve also published five books, ghost-written four others, produced large numbers of press releases, written strategic documents for businesses and written scripts for corporate videos and documentaries. I can turn my hand to most forms of writing, and like to think of myself as a one-stop writing shop.

In case you’re interested, some of the (South African) magazines I’ve been published in include: Fairlady, True Love, Baby & Me, Destiny, Your Family, Living and Loving, Oprah, A2, Aesthetic Surgery Magazine, Femina, Pace, Tribute, Ebony SA, Longevity, ASM, Me!, Indigo, Cosmopolitan, Woman’s Value, Edgars Club, Sales House Club, Club Jet and Clicks Clubcard. (Some are now defunct.)

I’ve also been published in the Mail & Guardian and Sunday Times and was a regular health writer for Business Day’s health supplement until it closed down. And I’ve been the editor of a number of supplements for Picasso Headline, on a wide variety of  subjects.

Plus I write a regular column for Bright Rock’s Change Exchange, where I reflect on life and the changes it brings.

So, if you need something written, please be in touch – I’m sure I’ll be able to help.
