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 on cherry-picked writing and editorial projects.
My portfolio includes:
- Authoring books and magazine articles
- Creating branded content
- Copywriting web content
- Content development
- 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 two of my games have been nominated for the Origins Award (2015 and 2017).
