I love the variety of my work. I might be creating one line of copy for a campaign headline or social tool one minute, and redrafting a chunky fundraising piece the next (collaborating with more stakeholders than you can cram in a meeting room). Here's a small selection of things I've worked on that I’ve managed to keep hold of over the years (sorry about all the PDFs).
From gala dinner brochures to campaign launch leaflets; scrolling storles to email marketing journeys... here's just a peek at some of the sorts of projects I've worked on. (This screen shot is a headline of mine from an internal staff guide to using branded social channels.)
In my 7-8 years in magazine journalism I specialised in true-life stories, but also wrote lifestyle, health and celebrity features, and reviews. I interviewed ordinary people made extraordinary by their experiences, including a woman who fell in love with a storm-chaser and became one herself, and teen friends caught in the 2004 tsunami in Thailand.
I've written two middle-grade/young teen novels (published by Piccadilly Press). The first was My Best Friend's Brother (a CosmoGIRL! love story) and the second is supernatural, theatrical story The Last Act.
