My extensive background in education (I’ve been teaching English, Literature and Literacy to secondary students for over two decades) has made me an expert in the finer points of the English language. I have a deep understanding of how to write for a range of different audiences. I write copy that is succinct, error free and engaging. 

I have an Arts degree in Literature, Anthropology and Philosophy, a Diploma in Education and a post graduate certificate in Children’s Literature. This broad academic experience has honed my skills for analysing information and presenting ideas in a range of different formats, purposes and people.


Need an article for your travel magazine or newspaper? I can interview your sources and write it for you.

Got your thoughts out onto the page but need someone to shape them into something that will engage your readers? 

Written an email, a speech or an article and you need an expert to proofread it? That’s my dream job.

From blog posts to web copy to feature articles, you know you need words to tell your brand’s stories and build a strong online presence.

Let me help you tell your story.

“Danielle is a talented writer, proofreader and editor. Danielle has edited memoirs for me and was instrumental in helping me proofread and edit The Truffleduck Book. I find her fast turn-around times, accuracy and professionalism at the top level and I have no hesitation in recommending her to others.”
Kristie Hayden

"Danielle took my rambling briefs and tight timeframe and delivered a bundle of articles that exceeded my expectations. Her content is engaging and well-researched. Knowing I can rely on Danielle to help me with client content when life piles up is a fantastic reassurance."
Angela Denly

I had taken on a huge SEO copywriting project for an existing client, but realised I didn’t have capacity to do it alone. Enter Danielle, an incredibly professional, efficient and responsive copywriter. Her work captured the essence of the brief and saved me lots of time, energy and headaches. I would have no hesitation recommending Danielle for copywriting work. She is incredibly reliable, respectful of deadlines and an enthusiastic collaborator. The client was thrilled with the work, and so was I.
