I'm a news and features journalist with more than 30 years' experience working for regional and daily newspapers, and women's magazines.
I've covered every subject under the sun - from hard crime to soft features, health, fun, human interest, comment, politics and all in between.
I've written front page splashes, hundreds of double page spreads, comment pieces, celebrity interviews, reviews and daily newspaper page leads.
Highly experienced with a strong reputation as an accurate and fast writer - shortlisted Scottish Feature of the Year 2014.

I also produce business-related features for Skip Hire Magazine, the UK journal for the waste industry, producing a business-related feature every month.

As a freelance copywriter, I've produced copy and content for a variety of brands, including Sainsbury's Bank, Scottish Gas, ACCA, Scottish Government, GoCompare, Virgin Trains, Flybe and dozens of others.
