In only a few hours, my phone has been red hot and the hits on my website are through the roof! My clients and associates are is also highly delighted with my SBS achievement.
I was born in Worcester, the only daughter of a British engineer/inventor and a book-loving mother. After university I went into the Civil Service and messed around with proofreading and marketing in my spare time. Inevitably, that took over and I worked for a water sports magazine group in London, then a regional newspaper group in Kent for a number of years. Wanting to understand the nuts and bolts of business, I qualified as an accountant (CIMA) and worked in a range of manufacturing industries and the public sector before setting up my own practice.
I moved to Ireland in 2004 and decided to return to the business I love the most. After some freelance writing for specialist magazines as a columnist and feature writer I set up Wordhouse Writing Services. I now have the best job in the world with clients across the globe.
I live in the middle of rural Ireland with my two Dalmatians Diva and Dizzy. In my spare time, such as it is, I enjoy dog shows, gardening and reading. I tinker with writing novels and non-fiction, and have a dog book published.
Never compromise your honesty and integrity, and don't lose your sense of humour. Deal fairly with people, give them excellent service and value. NEVER give up whatever happens. Keep learning new things and listen to your customers/clients; they are more important than anything.
