I’m a published author, writer, editor, and designer with 15 years of experience in typing up both the fanciful and the concise.

I’ve worked as a copywriter, content editor, subtitler, editor, and document controller – but whatever you call it, my approach differs from that of your average typist. I offer traditional, investigative content tailored to your audience. If you’d like to know more about me, read on here.

If you’re looking for great content tailored to your readers, I can help you with copywriting, editing, proofreading, and design (both web and paper based). I can also help you design your personal, professional, or wedding website*, with or without matching stationery.

*I’ve previously developed websites for St Matthew’s RC Church in Bishopbriggs, and my recent wedding.

Author Portfolio

In 2015 my writing was published as part of Anthony Turano’s Stockings Project, available in Canada and the US.

My cookbook (working title: Food Porn) is also planned for publication in late 2018/early 2019.

 

Testimonials

“Julia has been a spectacular addition to our team. Usually you hire a contract copywriter and they write your content, do the job and it’s all fine. But very rarely, somebody of Julia’s calibre comes along to blow all your expectations out of the water. Julia’s copy is always bang-on. She takes the time to get beneath the skin of requirements and to really focus on who the audience is. We’ve thrown a number of highly-varied challenges at her, and in every case she has not only risen to meet them, but excelled.” – Tom Nash, Three UK

“Julia is a committed and masterly writer, with an eye for detail and a passion for her subject.” – Anthony Moore, The Orient News

“Julia took to the task of news gathering and writing as if to the manner born, always pro-active and enthusiastic. With her very, and deceptively disarming approach, she was able to get stories that many more experienced colleagues could not, and she wrote them up with a natural flare and grace.” – Roger Harrison, Arab News
