My copywriting business, Texthouse, is based in the Scottish Borders. I’m also an award-winning writer of plays and fiction, and have a background in BBC Radio. I teach on the MA in Creative Writing for the Open University, and wrote this book for the many creative writers I’ve met who want to make a living from their skills.
