I have published short stories in anthologies and I am currently looking for an agent to represent my first novel, Secrets Bound in Sudden Rain.
Below are a few examples of my work.
The Social Worker – a thriller story about someone not as great as they seem
Monsters love in monster words – a poem utilising big words to convey how a love story between monsters would develop
Orange Trees – a horror story exploring the protagonist’s infatuation with a partner who is no good for them.
The Ribbon – a symbolism-heavy fairytale story following the flight of two birds as an echo to our reality
Fable of the Gorgon Gem – a fantasy retelling of a Bulgarian fairytale, underlining the importance of sacrifice and the light and shadow of death as a human experience
Published in The Living and the Dead: Creative Conversations between Past and Present, a Continuing Bonds Project anthology
I am what I call a chameleon writer. I adapt my writing style easily after researching the audience and pinpointing the true purpose of the piece. This was what I was taught in Journalism school and I believe it is always the right approach.
Below are a few examples of my work. For more please get in touch directly.
I offer professional writing for business blogs. I have access to the latest academic publications on any given topic – the article for you won’t be regurgitated content found on Google, it will be a unique piece featuring cutting-edge research.
How to deal with workplace bullying. A long-form, well-researched SEO piece with a compelling case study.
How to help leavers handle the handover process. Professionally written insight into the leaver process and a guide on how to help them handover successfully.
Create a good working environment in a multicultural office. A well-organised piece featuring a list of useful suggestions, supported by research.
How to build a great employee performance review. A step-by-step guide of professional practices based on new studies in the field.
I also have experience with lighter style blog pieces. I am confident in using different types of formatting to help readers engage with the content more.
10 great LGBT films. I use a web tool to create a good-looking, easy to follow list.
The link between attraction and star signs. I created illustrations to break text for better readability.
If you would like copy written about news in your industry or just within your company or business circles, look no further.
Here are some excellent examples of my newswriting.
I am really good at interviwing people. An interviewee once said they felt like they were talking to a close friend because our conversation flowed and didn’t feel like a checklist of questions. If you need to put someone’s feedback into copy, I am the right person for you.
Two people share the intimate story of their relationship. Case study written from two perspectives to enhance the understanding of the reader.
Women share their experience of sexual harrassment. Two case studies prefaced by a ‘what if’ scenario I used to draw readers in.
Social media copy
You think social media is easy? Maybe. But good copy is important to make an impact. You want your followers to stop scrolling and click on your post. I have been working professionally in social media for more than three years, communicating ideas to different target audiences.
At the moment, I curate the Twitter feed for the internationally renowned Political Studies journal. I convert difficult to understand technical ideas to simpler tweets and reach a wide audience of researchers around the globe.
