‘A brilliant cover letter (thank you, my ghost writer) that tied the entire submission together in a brilliant way’

A happy client said that about a submission that we (it wasn’t only me!) worked on to a very tight deadline.

Here are some more happy reports from clients:

In 2004 I returned to Australia after 18 months in Hong Kong and 16 years in the UK, 15 of which were spent as a journalist on the staff of the Financial Times. There I worked on the International Edition, World News (as the Cold War ended!), Special Reports and Features. I also wrote about the global travel and tourism sector. Highlights included writing special reports about the business of Caribbean tourism in Barbados, St Lucia and Dominica!)

In 2006 I launched The Writing Business and have provided copy, articles, proof reading, editing and mentoring to business and individuals for diverse clients. To ensure smooth service within tight timeframes, I have created a small but perfectly formed team of people who assist me whenever needed and who each bring their unique talents to our work.
