“Climb a Word Mountain with me”

I’ve worked as a writer and editor since 1996, primarily as an in-house editorial or production professional for book and journal publishers, global brands and academic institutions. I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

In 2014 I founded Word Mountain Creative Content, allowing me to focus full-time on cherry-picked writing and editorial projects.

My portfolio includes:

  • Authoring books and magazine articles
  • Creating branded content
  • Copywriting web content
  • Content development
  • Copyediting
  • Editorial and brand training
  • Proofreading and QC
  • Researching subject areas to produce relevant content
  • Traditional game design and development

I have over a decade of experience editing, managing, and training professionals for a renowned global publishing ‘how to’ brand (For Dummies), and led the UK Content Management team for a global travel brand (Frommer’s).

I am an experienced writer, and have had a number of books and non-computer games published. One of my books about King Arthur won second place in the History Today/Longman New Generation Prize (2005), and one of my games was nominated for the Origins Award (2015).

I am based in Sussex, and am available to work as an in-house consultant, but also work remotely or as part of a virtual team.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your editorial needs or content ideas – I’d be delighted to hear from you. Please get in touch HERE.
