Writer: Wellness, Writing & Women Entrepreneurs

About Me

I began my career as a journalist, working as both a staff and freelance features writers before becoming the founding editor of a fortnightly entertainment magazine. Moving to the area of PR and communications I accumulated over 15 years’ experience, working both independently as a freelance publicist and as a team leader in multi-functional environments as well as with a cross-section of individuals, groups and organizations. During this time I further honed my writing, editing, research and proofing skills. Thorough and reliable, I understand the importance of (and can always meet) a deadline. In the last few years, I have moved back to my area of passion - writing, and, as a book coach, supporting others in their writing too. I have worked with - and continue working with - a series of world-class clients including RTE (Ireland's national broadcaster), the Department of Arts, Sport, and Tourism (Ireland), Spartan, Strength Matters, Talent Quarterly, Centre of Excellence, and Syndicate Media, among others.

5 Key Reasons Women Entrepreneurs Should Consider Writing a Book

I'm a firm believer in the idea that "the more women write, the more women write." And in this article, I discuss how books written by women entrepreneurs are key to helping other women side-step the belief that there's only one way to be a successful entrepreneur.

Sleep Your Way to Your First Book

Sleep is essential for creativity. And while many of us think we should be able and willing to forgo sleep to write our opus, the facts say otherwise. In this article, I highlight how sleeping more can help you write better.

Experience

Writer & Book Coach

I write and edit articles, white papers, books, and other content for digital, audio, and visual media, for creatives, coaches, changemakers, business owners, and entrepreneurs. I also work as a “book midwife” to a select number of women every year. This involves helping, culture-making, multi-passionate entrepreneurial women birth the books that represent their vision and voice in the world.
