“Jeanne and I have been to the South of France, drank beer in Munich and eaten Kleftiko together in Corfu – but we are yet to meet. Her features transport our readers and myself on her cullinary journeys through her words and pictures. There are not many people that I would give carte blanche to hand us a complete, packaged feature and know that it will be on time, inspiring and a joy to read!” – Matthew Ibbotson, editor Crush! magazine


I am available to accept writing commissions (editorial and commercial).   I can offer a complete package of text and high-resolution photographs as required, for anything from a press release to a full-length feature.  My work has been published in a number of print and electronic publications and below you will find samples of my commissioned work in print and online.Topics  in which I specialise include:

  • food
  • travel
  • recipes/recipe development
  • wine
  • South Africa
  • photography
  • legal and ethical aspects of blogging and social media

Should you be interested in commissioning a piece, or purchasing an existing piece on my blog to be tailored for your publication, please contact me to discuss your requirements and the individual voice that I can bring to your project, as well as my rates.  For purely photographic commissions, please contact me for rates.

While working as a lecturer I proofread a number of academic dissertations and articles, in various fields including law and psychology.  I edited the first draft of a novella for a friend, and more recently I have been deeply involved in both the editing and proofreading of  The Blogger Aid Cook Book, a charity cookbook comprising over 140 recipes.  I have an excellent eye for detail and am skilled at editing without losing the voice of the writer. I have extensive experience at Afrikaans to English and English to Afrikaans translations and I am happy to provide references. Please e-mail me if you want to discuss your requirements or my fee arrangements.
