Katherine L. McKay

Writer/graphic designer plus MS Office and Photoshop guru.

Hello! Thank you for looking at my biography page.

First, the day job! I have 18 years' experience perfecting documents in MS Word, PowerPoint and Excel, as well as designing brochures, newsletters and invitations using InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. I am used to working under time pressure and love being a ‘life-saver’ with document fixes. Here is some of the feedback I received in my last role:

“Incredibly helpful – even when I ring up and need something urgently I can always rely on you to get something done!”

“You use your initiative, you reply quickly and accurately and when we are under pressure time wise, the time difference works in our favour.”

“Extremely efficient and pro-actively helpful. Willing to go out of your way to resolve issues on our behalf.”

“I have on many occasions had to ask Katherine to complete sizable and complex projects at very short notice, as well as the more day to day issues. In all cases she turns things around extremely quickly and efficiently and the work she does is of very high standard. She is always keen to ensure she delivers what you have asked for, and more.”

Now the writing bit! I have been writing fiction for many years now, usually the same novel which has won competitions and had interest from agents - but never quite made it to publication. I have lots of experience of proofing, editing and providing feedback on other writers' work – and I know how hard the process can be, apart from those occasional glorious moments when you’re loving it!

Finally, a bit about me. I have a degree in English Literature from the University of London and subsequently taught English in Greece for two years, back in the 1990s.

I recently moved to Pembrokeshire with my husband and son to start a new life, not exactly in the wild, but in a lovely valley with a stream and mercifully excellent internet connection. I’m now keen to get going on freelancing and would love to help you with your work.
