Where’s she come from? What’s she done? Where’s she been?
Okay, this is the ‘About Me’ bit.
As a bit of an introvert and the least peacocky kinda girl you could ever clap eyes on, this page makes me squirm a bit.
But I know it’s probably the best way for us to decide if we’re a good fit for working together, right?
So let me share some of the bits you might be interested in, and reassure you that I’m a friendly, genuine, wordy nerdy kinda girl with precisely the kind of credentials you’re looking for.
The ‘At Home’ Michelle…
I live in the country, near Durham, surrounded by rolling hills and gorgeous walks.
I’m mum to a very lovely boy and a very lovely girl (mostly lovely, that is).
At times I’m happiest in my walking boots and with an Audible book plugged in.
At others I’m happiest in the company of my little family and eating afternoon tea with my friends.
And sometimes I’m just happy with a book in my hand and a chocolate bar in my belly.
The ‘At Work’ Michelle…
I love spending my days writing – whether it’s my book or content for my business, or content for my clients.
All is well when I’m I’m tapping away on the keyboard to the sound of the birds in my garden, cup of liquorice tea to hand .
But all is not well when I’m interrupted by a knock at the door asking me to take in parcels for the whole street <do you get that too?>
Or I’m doing proper work bits like the accounts, the admin, the paperwork and chasing invoices.
The ‘Educated’ Michelle…
I graduated from The Open University when I was 40 years old <<<I’m a late developer>>> with a First Class BA Honours in English Language and Literature plus a Diploma in Creative Writing and Literature.
I studied business, finance and secretarial skills at college.
I’m also a qualified Teeline Shorthand tutor.
I’ve ghostwritten a 30,000 word book.
I’ve worked in publishing for more than 20 years.
I’ve been on tons of online courses <<<continuing to learn is a big thing for me>>> and learnt how to publish books on Kindle and Createspace, how to proofread like a professional, how to be a copywriter, and how to market your business like a ninja.
