Freelance Writer, Editor & Writing Teacher
Introduction
I am a working professional freelance writer, editor and writing teacher. I live in Staffordshire, England, with my partner Jayne (an IT lecturer) and our two cats.

I am the author of over 100 non-fiction books. These include Living & Working in Germany, Living & Working in Italy, Start Your Own Home-Based Business, Stress-Busting, How to Find Your Ideal Partner, and Advertising for the Small Business.

I also write articles, short stories, advertising copy, TV and radio scripts, website copy, e-books, multimedia presentations, and training materials.

Another area in which I have worked extensively is writing novelty books and products - everything from quiz books to party games, mystery puzzles to mug and tee-shirt slogans.

I am the author of a growing range of training courses for writers and aspiring writers, including Quick Cash Writing, Write Any Book in Under 28 Days, and Essential English for Authors (all published on CD-ROM or as downloads by the electronic publishing house WCCL. For more information about any of these, please visit my homepage at www.nickdaws.co.uk.

I particularly enjoy fiction writing. I am an award-winning short-story writer, with work published in various anthologies. My novella The Festival on Lyris Five was recently published by Salvatore Publishing. I am always especially interested to receive inquiries about fiction-writing, novelizations, and so on.

I have a blog at www.mywritingblog.com, to which anyone with an interest in writing is welcome to subscribe. I also run the free Mywriterscircle.com writers' community and forum, which has been in the Writer's Digest magazine Top 101 Websites for Writers list for the last two years.

Although my primary area of expertise is writing and editing, I am also increasingly involved in Internet publishing and marketing.

I am happy to receive proposals for collaborations and joint ventures, or inquiries about potential writing commissions. My areas of special interest include small business matters and self-employment, self-development, personal finance, gambling for profit, freelance writing, grammar and punctuation, and the Internet. However, as a full-time professional freelance writer, I am happy to write (or edit) on any subject not requiring extensive specialist knowledge.
