Summary

Experienced business professional and published non-fiction author with expertise in the areas of professional writing, business analysis, digital marketing , blog writing and content creation. I am interested in working with others on non-fiction book collaborations as a mentor, co-author, ghost writer or contributor. My aim is to help others get their message and story out there in an engaging and marketable manner. I have a particular interest in 'blogging with purpose' and creating books using blogs as the base content.

Biography

Experienced Business Analyst and Business Manager with over 30 years of experience in a broad range of industry sectors. With tertiary qualifications in both Business and Professional Writing, I have authored a non-fiction book about home renovations that has been professionally published in 2019.

Critical reviews for ‘Nail Your Renovation without getting Screwed’ have been overwhelming positive:
'An absolute renovator's bible of what to do and what not do' Blue Wolf Reviews
'A definitive guide to all the nitty-gritty of home renovation' The West Australian

I am now looking to mentor others or work together with others on book collaborations where we take a concept all the way through the journey to published book. In particular I am keen to help others get started by blogging - either in an informal (via social media) or more formal context (via website) - to start forming the content of what will eventually become their book. Breaking large subject matter into bite-size pieces is a great way to get started.

In addition to this, I am able to deploy my analysis skills to determine what content matters (across any subject matter) and research who the potential audience is and what their interests are based on Google search statistics, keyword analysis , Facebook group research and other digital methods. From there I can shape a strong framework for a book that will have genuine interest and appeal.

Creating a book that people want to read is important to me. I find with non-fiction books, that many potential authors have a message they want to get out there, but do not approach the project from an audience-driven perspective. I want to help others achieve published status by working with them to get their message out there in a way that gives their topic broader appeal and the best possible chance for success.
