I'm usually very busy, but still open to compelling commissions from new publications.


My favourite thing is to have a running or hiking adventure and write about it. But I love doing anything that has the spirit of adventure.


I'm passionate about words. So I still enjoy editing, subediting and proofreading on books, magazines and websites – often from home.


For what it's worth, my writing credits include:
