Meet the Author

Tapping away at a keyboard is what fills my day. It wasn't always this way. For twenty years I was a High School English teacher -- the change really started one day during my long service leave ...


I was sitting in the dentist's chair having root canal treatment and it occurred to me that at this time I would normally be teaching my year nine class (around 15 years of age). When I realised that I'd rather be sitting where I was than in front of a class, I knew it was time to look for something new!


That something new took the form of a Web site dedicated to helping people improve their writing. I'm still able to focus on my love of education and learning, but now my classroom is the entire world!


Since leaving teaching, I've written and marketed a series of writing courses and ebooks, and I've also been a freelance writer, undertaking a variety of assignments for clients from around the globe -- writing articles for the print media,,preparing award submissions for business clients; copy-writing and proof-reading works of non-fiction, editing web pages and e-books, writing press releases and much more.


My website, write101.com has been part of the Web's writing community since 1998 and continues to offer detailed insights into the workings of the English language presented with just a touch of humour. Voted one of the 101 best websites for writers, Write101 has more than 1,000 pages of articles about all aspects of writing. My weekly writing tips newsletter has 16,000+ subscribers from every continent (except Antarctica!)
