Experience

It's the old story: I started writing "newspapers" for my household at age five.  I founded and edited my high school newspaper until I matriculated. But a BA in Journalism and English (Rhodes) and an MA cum laude in Creative Writing (UKZN) gave me the skills to make a career out of my passion. (I've promised my folks that I can make a living as a writer - don't let me down!)

I am passionate about parenting and about the environment (check out how I combine these issues on my blog at http://blogs.parent24.com/veggietots). I am also a contributing columnist on www.parent24.com.

A practicing Jewess, my work has been published in the SA Jewish Report, Jewish Life Magazine, and Hashalom (Durban's Jewish monthly magazine), as well as www.aish.comwww.myshtetl.co.zahttp://www.collive.comhttp://www.shmais.com, and www.chabadnc.com.

I've also dabbled in the corporate field, creating press releases, newsletters and company profiles for various businesses.  

I specialize in easy-reading, informative articles, including soft news, features and profiles.

I pride myself on personalised, quality service; excellent, well-edited writing; professionalism; initiative; creativity; and reliability (including the ability to meet deadlines).

I look forward to helping you with your requirements!
