About Me

I’m a freelance writer, copywriter and writing tutor for The Writers Bureau.

My love affair with writing came about as a result of an accident, when I could no longer carry out my job working in a bank. That accident was the best thing that’s happened to me!

I joined The Writers Bureau as a student and since then have never looked back.
