Mission Statement

Gimli my fluffy footwarmer who keeps me company while I write.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.

Once upon a time I wanted to be a writer. But like many I forgot that dream and got a ‘proper’ job.

But them one day, many years later, everything went wrong. I found myself in a foreign country, with no money and without the paperwork which would allow me to get a job.

I had to do something, and that something was –  write.

Now I earn a substantial  income from writing. I write for websites and newsletters of my own, I write information products and I write for clients. And according to most people I know (it’s not just my view) I’ve got a dream job.

I work at home, for myself, with a very fluffy dog, and my two kids. I spend much of the day  on my large friendly balcony in sunny Florida. I work when I want, and I’m selective about clients. I’m not vastly rich, and I do still work, and work hard, but I enjoy what I do and I can indulge myself while I do it. I drink  too much tea and eat too many pieces of Edinburgh shortbread,

But what may surprise you is that I built this business in less than a year, and with little or no knowledge about the web and its ways.

So if I can do it, you can too.

If you’ve ever wondered if you can learn how to write and make an income while staying at home with your kids, then I’m here to show you that it’s possible.

If you’re a blogger, a store owner or affiliate marketer you’ve already found out that you need to do a lot of writing.

This site should be useful.

If you don’t want to start an e-business, or you’ve no capital to get started with, or you’re just plain bored and want some more income, the web needs content and it needs writers.

This website is about my journey from pauper to author in a few short months. It’s a personal journey, so why not come along?
