What you see is news, what you know is background, what you feel is opinion.
Lester Markel, American journalist, 1894-1977
I grew up in a house where newspapers always accompanied morning tea. Just sitting next to my father, and discussing world events made me fall in love with the word News.
Over the years, I have worked as an in-house writer, as well as a freelancer for print and online publications. The news pieces that I produced employed extensive research, investigative, interviewing, reporting, writing and editing skills.
