My career in journalism began with a junior reporter's job on a local newspaper - a fairly traditional route into the writing profession. I moved onto the launch of Future Publishing's Amiga Shopper as production editor, then onto the launch of PC Format and was soon made editor of the Amiga Format special editions.
Rather than give you a blow-by-blow account of all I have done since then, here are the key points, plus a selection of downloadables by which you can judge my work. If you decide that my experience and ability is right for your publishing project, please get in touch.
