Biographer and freelance writer

Biography and Memoir Service

As a seasoned biographer and ghostwriter with a track record of working with both UK and international clients, I provide a high quality, professional service for helping you write your life story. Every individual has a story worth telling, and I am intrigued by how circumstance, upbringing, life events and choices can shape an individual in terms of motivation, achievements, and perspectives on life. Through detailed historical research and a carefully structured interview process, I will work in close collaboration to provide a full and accurate biography, presented in your “voice”. I also offer a corporate biography service, providing unique historical records for entrepreneurs, commercial and voluntary sector organisations, celebrating origins and achievements, and which can function as a PR and marketing resource. My biography publications can range from 1,000 word articles to 80,000+ word books, and I will tailor the presentation to your specific needs.

Music, Culture and Travel

I write for artists, record labels, magazines, social media, music websites and surrounding communities. Briefs are welcomed to assist in the promotion of new product or recording artists and “retrospective” projects. My work as a biographer has resulted in five books on the development of soul music. Because of my life long passion for music, work within the industry and networking with related sub-culture scenes, I am perfectly positioned to deliver the client’s project to a targeted audience. I am also immersed in wider cultural writing activities, including a range of outdoor lifestyle, international travel and history themes.

Nutrition and Health

Nutrition and health topics are also a speciality, attained through a former 25-year career as a clinical dietitian working in medical, surgical, critical care and community settings. I have authored several research papers and commentaries in peer reviewed medical and clinical nutrition journals. The British Dietetic Association also commissioned my services to contribute to the 5th Edition of the Manual of Dietetic Practice, the core reference text book of the UK dietetic profession.

“It’s the kind of book that makes you want to throw yourself into any number of fine retrospective record collections exploring the work of labels, both well-known and obscure. In every way, an outstanding undertaking (5 star rating)”
