About Me
I'm a property/private client solicitor-turned full time legal writer.  I originally trained in journalism, before going into law - then returned to my first love (words - and writing). 
I now write about the law and legal developments.  I also write on business  matters.
Current Projects
What am I working on?


This week I'm writing on GDPR (again!), title indemnity insurance, insolvency cases - and business developments for a niche tax firm.
I'm also working on an editorial submission for a Canadian law firm client for a global legal directory.

I love writing.  I love the law. I loved practicing law. And I discovered, through an organic process, that writing is my true love.  Having started out in journalism, then joining the ranks of the solicitors' profession, I went full circle - returning to journalism and writing.


Today, the majority of work is for legal or law related clients - but I also write on business developments and business finance.

The rest of my time is spent managing a family (with four children), a golden retriever who begs to play when I work, and being an active part of a church family.
