I create copy, proofread, and edit. I can produce press releases, compose articles,I blog about my life, deliver workshops and write plays. I've written for clients such as the BBC, Groupon and Netmums.com. I was the Media and Theatre Manager for BrewDrinkingThinkings.com.
My real writing passion is playwriting and in 2012, my first play, Loaded was produced by a professional theatre company for the Manchester 24:7 Theatre Festival. I am now writing my second play.
I love teaching and I am very passionate about alternative and inclusive education for young people. I specialise in behaviour management and I am an ASDAN co-ordinator. I also have experience teaching adults.
I've been lucky enough to combine writing and teaching as well as being a mother to my two boys.
