A seasoned researcher-writer and editor/proof reader, with experience in creating content for factual television, print and online material, I excel at finding, curating, polishing and presenting high quality information, whatever the subject matter.
I have a degree in Journalism and Media Studies, and an MA in the Cultural Study of Cosmology & Divination (cum laude).
Over the years, I have developed a successful copywriting and proofreading practice, producing and editing a wide range of written content, from social media blogs and posts, to news articles and promotional material, right through to ebooks and non-fiction manuscripts. Specialisms include technical and health/science writing, as well as academic proofreading.
My clients come from all over the English-speaking world, including Australia, America, Asia, Africa, the Netherlands and Sweden. I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping non-native English speakers to polish and prepare their academic theses, papers and dissertations for submission.
After forging a successful career as a researcher and assistant producer of documentary/current affairs programming and film production in South Africa, I emigrated to the UK where I moved into print media and publishing, as well as academic/historical/archive research.
In 2017, I spent a year conducting in-depth research into the life, family history and travels of EW Cole, a well-known folk hero in Australia, on behalf of the EW Cole Foundation in preparation for a new biography and website that will be launched in 2020. My search for clues and documentary evidence took me to museums, libraries and archives around the UK and South Africa – an experience that I enjoyed immensely.
Since 2013, I have collaborated with a number of clients and charities, including the Urania Trust and The Aspinall Foundation, to write and publish several non-fiction books. See my publications page for more details.
Currently, I am working with a London publisher to produce my own book on astrology, which is due to be published in the autumn of 2020. Check my news page regularly for updates.
