I write for a diverse range of channels. Today’s media technologies are driven by new deadlines and publishing schedules that no longer revolve around printing press schedules. This finds me writing anything from eBook content, through 2500 word features destined for monthly magazines all the way to 500 word blog posts and 160 character Tweets. We live in some fascinating times and writing about the subjects I’m passionate about has never been more exciting.
A Car Writer, But With A Broad Brush
Cars and transportation are what I’m known for, but I’m quite happy to travel anywhere and cover anything including aviation, technology, buildings, travel and architecture. I’ve written about everything from collectable classics and historic F5000 racing cars to Japanese tuner cars and the latest hybrid technology. As ever, the most important aspects of the best motoring features are not just the cars themselves, but the passions of the people involved. I’ve met everyone from world champions of motorsport and racing legends to rock star musicians and tuner car builders with a demonic obsession. It’s a diverse life.
I work with publishers to create long form features. Together, we create stories about such diverse subjects as driving lightweight Porsche, picturesque road trip stories through France and driving reports on both the exciting new technologies happening today plus the iconic classic cars that everyone would love to own.
I deliver copy on deadline, on word count and to your brief, working with your editorial and creative teams or working solo to create words and pictures features as required. I’m able to oversee and co-ordinate production of photo and video shoots, safely and on budget.
Online Writing and SEO
Publishers, brands and consumer websites are now valuing the ‘Legacy Effect’ of digital content, with quality articles attracting readers long after the printed publication is headed for the recycling pile. Writing for both human beings and search engines is a skill that takes practice. As Google becomes ever more intelligent, it’s algorithms favour quality content as never before.
First and foremost, the best digital content is created for human beings not robots. I am able to craft online blog posts and articles to help clients gain authority in their chosen area and optimise seamlessly for SEO.
