Experience

Summary

I've been a freelance writer for three months. In that time I have really worked the grind, learned a lot. I've edited a novel, written more blog posts than I can count on everything from chainsaws to Icelandic weddings, mastered SEO and written news.

What I read

All books, I love reading, from literary fiction to a juicy crime thriller. The last novel I read was "The Nutshell" by Ian McEwan, I'm about to start "Little Women" as I have never read it. Marie Claire, Vogue, Who, Elle, Women's Health & Fitness.

Side projects

I have written a YA novel, hoping it will be published this year. I assist people with their resumes and cover letters as this is something I am passionate about. I edited a novel which is at the publishers for a young Australian novelist.

Ideal team

I like to work with a smaller team, so all voices can be heard, or if it is a large team then work via a remote platform. I get along well with most people & can work with all types of people & managers, but prefer to be autonomous as I am a professional.
