Ever since I was a little girl, I loved the written word. As a 5-year-old, my collection of “Golden Books” was the envy of the neighborhood. By 10, the bookshelf was bulging with tales of adventure, fantasy worlds and far off places. Carolyn Keen, Franklin W. Dixon, Enid Blyton, and C.S. Lewis rocked my world. As time wore on, they were replaced with Raymond E. Feist, Janny Wurts, James A Michener, and Elizabeth George. Although, I do like to revisit Narnia at least once every five years.
I loved to write as well as read. My first taste of fame was a poetry competition in third grade. First prize was a free lunch at the tuck shop! Now that was hitting the big time! A pie and crisps never tasted so good.
Adulthood arrived, and aspirations of becoming a famous author made way for the day to day business of being a “grown-up.” Instead of stories, I wrote policies, procedures, work instructions, risk management plans, and training resources. Don’t get me wrong. I made an excellent living, and I’m pretty dang good at it. But it’s not the same thing as topping the New York Time’s best seller list, is it? Thankfully all that experience comes in very handy when writing for others.
My husband Tim is a Graphic Designer, and we’ve both embraced a “location independent” lifestyle. We’re both qualified English (ESL) teachers and divide our time between exploring new destinations and teaching in Ho Chi Minh City. Trust me. There’s no better way to get a thorough grasp of the English language than to teach it!
A few years back I wrote a book to help out other long-term travelers. Then…Hooray!… Fate intervened, and I sold it to a publisher who has developed it as a premium product. (Want to get your hands on it, then head over to the promo page.)
By early 2018, my freelance writing client base had grown so much I didn’t have time to teach. Tim now helps me out, and we divide our time between clients and exploring the world.
We freelance for a diverse set of clients, across multiple forums and base our success on four fundamental principles: Quality, Experience, Value, and Client Satisfaction. If you need someone reliable to help out with your writing and editing needs, then get in touch. Want to know more about the services I offer? You can learn more HERE.
So that’s all about me and my crazy life. What are you up to? Do you need writing assistance or do you want to write yourself? Can I help you with anything or answer a question? Or, do you know something you think I should too? Let me know.

I found your profile on Upwork as I am currently offering a job on there that you may be interested in.
However, since reading your website I have decided to offer the job direct because I want to support as many freelancers traveling across borders as I can. (truly its because I envy you and a tad jealous because you are having the experience I nearly had but cannot right at this point in time!)
I’d love to skype/zoom at some stage to see what your experience is and if we have synergy as a have a large content requirement, blog, article, eBook and instruction manuals.
I’m off to a basketball game right now so possibly as you are reading this I will be cheering on our champion team!
I will be back at my desk in the morning though, like a hungry hyena stalking prey for quality content 🙂
Let me know if you are available over the weekend to video conference.
I am looking for someone to write a workbook from scratch for my target audience – SME’s.
At the end of the book the reader needs to have been stepped through a process to identify what business they are really in.
This needs to be practical workbook with lots of examples to get the audience to think creatively and plenty of challenging statements to ensure they drill down and get it right.
