Although Andrea has been writing professionally for the past six years, she honed her writing skills long before that.

As a Further Education Lecturer in both public and private education, she wrote training materials and assisted students with written assignments.

She produced a digital baking magazine and interviewed celebrity bakers, wrote the editorial, curated recipes, and managed the social media accounts associated with the magazine.

Her focus now is working with owners of small, creative businesses, and for the past six years, she has enjoyed working with fascinating and sometimes unique small businesses.

Her work is diverse and interesting. One day she may be writing website copy for a furniture restorer, the next day podcast show notes, and another day proofreading and editing a book. And whatever the business is, she prides herself on thoroughly researching the business and always writes in their voice.

Personally, she wrote a parenting blog for her local newspaper and currently produces her own blog about the renovation of an old caravan in which she intends to travel around the United Kingdom, writing about the places that she visits.
