About me

About me

I’m Kate and I’m a copywriter and proofreader in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. I also have a love of dogs and a passion for taking photographs.

Whether I’m on a website, or reading a brochure, an email or a blog article, what makes me want to keep reading is copy that flows, gets the message across quickly – and speaks to me personally.

20 years’ experience as a copywriter – and a love of words

I started my career in advertising and I’ve been involved in account management and customer services, always providing copy for clients as part of my role. I’ve been working as a freelance copywriter since 2002.

I enjoy taking a difficult subject and turning it into readable, interesting copy. In fact, the more complicated it is, the bigger the challenge.

I don’t like jargon and I’m anal about grammar and spelling – but that’s a pretty important quality in a proofreader.

There’s also no need to use five words when just one will do!

“Kate stood out from the other copywriters I’d spoken to and I was blown away by the high quality of her work. She gives 100% of her heart and soul, she takes the time to really listen to the brief and genuinely cares about helping people.” Tonya Bolton, Empowerment Specialist

Proud to be a mad dog lady

If you really want to know what sort of person I am, most people would describe me as ‘dog mad’. Not just mad about dogs, but passionate about rescue dogs and the problems caused by over-breeding.

I’m vehemently opposed to greyhound racing and would like nothing more than to see an end to the industry.

I have three rescue dogs – Humphry Hamilton (epileptic retriever cross), Belle-Belle (the beautiful girl in the picture above who was found straying in Ireland, rescued by Erin Hounds and brought to England) and Jessie B, a stunning black greyhound who managed to escape the racing industry.

Lucas Blue, my third greyhound, was not so lucky. Dumped after he’d outlived his usefulness, he emerged terrified of life but thanks to his wonderful trusting nature, managed to enjoy four very happy years with us. My first greyhound was a beautiful brindle called Mollie and I also had the joy of Hallie Bean, a black girl who loved to howl along to ‘Black Horse and the Cherry Tree’ by KT Tunstall….

My first dog, Jerry, was simply the best dog I could ever have wished for. A black and white terrier cross, that boy had attitude. I still miss him every day.

In 2012, I faced my biggest fears (flying, heights and falling from a great height) and threw myself out of an aeroplane at 13,500 feet (that’s 2.5 miles!) with nothing but a man and bit of cloth attached to me to raise money for Dogs Trust. That’s how much I love dogs!

I love photography and offer Pet Portraits for dog lovers in Warwickshire.
