Fiction

Apocalypse Later is an illustrated paperback based on my show. Appreciating Assets is a fast-paced comedy, available as an ebook on Amazon Kindle. If you don’t want to commit to a full novel, take a punt on the short stories in Britons in Brief. More details on my fiction page. In 2013 I started a major five-volume comedy called Doctor How.

Journalistic publications

The London Evening Standard: http://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/london-life/party-like-theres-no-tomorrow-8371349.html You know how it goes: my carefully crafted 850 words were hacked down to an uncredited opening paragraph – the only crass one I wrote – and a few words under the book.

I wrote a large proportion of www.dads-space.com, part of the Parent Know-How programme. I produced 65 350-word articles in ten days, pitching expert medical and psychological advice at a wide adult audience.

SEO and Web Marketing

www.justaccountancyjobs.com is a website for financial and accounting professionals. The career blog is my content, which is long-phrase keyword optimised.

Created the original copy and website for www.sems-exploration.com. Unfortunately, the owner decided to transfer to a Ghanaian provider, hence the appalling spelling and poor aesthetics.

www.fionnphort-cottage.com and www.dungrianach.wordpress.com are designed to market a self-catering holiday cottage in Fionnphort, Isle of Mull.
