In recent years, I’ve written and edited: website content, handbooks, app copy, content for a national newspaper in Scotland and numerous articles for Scottish Book Trust and their partner organisations.

I’ve prepared content and curated book lists for Children in Scotland, the Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution, LGBT Youth Scotland and Education Scotland. I’ve reviewed a million books for Children’s Books Ireland’s website, their Inis magazine and other bespoke publications. And I’m also an editorial expert for the UK’s leading book recommendation website, LoveReading.co.uk.

As well as articles and reviews, I’ve posted countless social media posts. Written targeted newsletter content. Prepared online competitions and edited scripts for YouTube videos.

I’m lucky to live in one of the most beautiful corners of Scotland: the Tweed Valley. Even better, I get to write about all my favourite things to do and see in the area for Go Tweed Valley, a wonderfully vibrant Tourism BID.

In my spare time, I’m writing and editing my own books.
