WRITING FOR OTHERS
Clients occasionally ask me to do more than check what they or their authors have written, by producing copy for them. My copywriting portfolio is still small, but it is perfectly formed (almost) and available here.
WRITING FOR MY OWN PLEASURE
When I am not helping others with their words, I like to write my own. I have been writing poems and short stories on and off since I was sixteen. The inclusion of some of them on this website is the first time they have appeared in the public domain.
I also occasionally write longer works. “The Patriotic Art”, my memoir of my career in the diplomatic world, was published in December 2012 – click here for details.
At various stages in my life I have started to write three novels; none has yet been completed. But that has not put me off, and the latest attempt is an ongoing project.
All of this has been for fun rather than with any hope of fame or fortune. But if anybody detects commercialisable talent here, please tell your friendly publisher (and me).
