Since leaving full-time employment in January 2003, I have continued to work as a freelance journalist, writing for UK titles The Mirror, Sunday Mirror and The People as well as trade and specialist magazines.
I have been a journalist since 1989, starting out as a reporter on local papers (Review Group Newspapers, Buxton Advertiser), progressing into trade journalism and full editing roles. For both local newspaper titles, I regularly covered Court proceedings at magistrates’ and Crown Court.
Since I went freelance in 2003, I have edited titles and proof-reading has been a constant feature of my work.
I am used to working in both web and print media.
