What’s more interesting – the box, or the chocolates inside?

As a professional writer, I get to the heart of what people are really interested in. The bits that really matter. The tasty bits. The inspiring, the satisfying, the innovative, the unconventional, the crowd-pleasing. In short, my writing focuses on all the chocolatey bits, enticing people back for more.

Whether you’re a business looking for a skilled copywriter, an individual looking for a ghostwriter to help raise your profile, or a group or organisation looking for something that little bit more creative or unusual, you’re in the right place.

"The difference between my writing and [Michelle’s] has convinced me using a professional writer is the best option."

"I have worked with Michelle on many occasions and I am always impressed with the way she is able to produce clear, interesting and easy to read text content, when she is often provided with little to go on.

As a designer I enjoy collaborating with Michelle because she is able to think creatively, and she produces content for our own website and literature that reflects our brand language. She is also able to adapt to our clients' brand languages, providing content that complements our designs.

It's no easy task yet Michelle manages to achieve outstanding results, often under tight deadlines."
