I've been a writer and editor since 2003 when I made my first professional sale adapting Pinocchio for Penguin Books. I was paid the grand total of $0.00 - woo hoo!
I then took on some other freelance writing work for which I earned more zero until I became an editor and writer for Funtastic Publishing in 2004. I then wrote *everything*.
Disney colouring books, storybooks, Pixar stuff, Warner Bros, Universal Studios, sticker books, educational series, non-fiction books, sales sheets, birthday invitations ...
It was great fun but there is a limit to how many Princess stories a man can write before he starts to lose it. Live happily ever after? Not this time, Princess.
So I dove into freelancing and worked all over the place. Kids flying British Airways and Qantas get activity/story books that I wrote to keep them entertained. Mimes being sent into war zones read comforting words from me. You may even find yourself gripped by some packaging text on a hairdryer.
