Hi. I’m Melanie. From angst-driven poetry in teendom to copy, web and technical writer, I have always written. I predominantly write content and commercial non-fiction. More recently I have returned to my love of creative writing using a nom de plume, with a penchant for short stories and cozy crime aka Malice Domestic. More about me here.


Need to keep in touch with prospects through website material, social media posts, or marketing material? I’m a professional copywriter with experience in radio and print advertising. Let me take over the hassle for you of keeping your content clear and purposeful. I’m not taking on more clients right now, but you’re welcome to join the waiting list


Writing professionally and for a career pays off when you couple that with a qualified and experienced facilitator. Melanie ran her own training business for 15 years after a corporate training career and has now directed her expertise to help people learn to write and to write better.
