Sue has been writing about the IT industry since graduating from
Lancaster University in 1990. After 10 years in staff reporting
and editing jobs in London - on Computergram International (which
later became Computerwire), and then The VAR magazine - she went
freelance in 2001, to facilitate a move to France.
In France, Sue became a prolific freelance writer for the UK IT
and business press, counting publications including The Guardian,
The Times and B2B Marketing magazine among her clients. As a copywriter,
meanwhile, she produced strategic work for the likes of Cisco, Microsoft,
Capgemini and CIO Connect.
In 2002, Sue was commissioned to ghost-write a major 80,000-word
IT business book for Capgemini, as part of a book series organised
by the Management Consultancies Association (MCA). This was published
internationally by Hodder & Stoughton. The book, written for
a senior management audience on the subject of complex systems integration,
is called Joined-Up Systems: Building the Integrated Business. The
project was successfully delivered on time and to budget within
just three months.
In 2006, following the sudden, untimely death of her husband, Nicholas,
Sue moved back to the UK, where she now works from her home office
in beautiful west Wales. She continues to freelance for a wide range
of prestigious clients, which include The Daily Telegraph, Euromoney
plc, Source for Consulting, CIO Connect and a number of leading
contract publishing companies and marketing agencies.
Backed by 21 years' experience of writing about the IT industry,
Sue produces the full spectrum of content - from issue-driven feature
articles for national newspapers and specialist industry publications,
to ghost-written content for some of the biggest names in technology
and telecoms. This content includes customer and partner case studies,
complex white papers and research reports, web and brochure copy,
bylined opinion articles and conference speeches.
Never known to miss a deadline, Sue has earned a reputation for
producing excellent copy at extremely short notice. She is relied
upon by numerous clients as an extension of their internal team,
and in particular for taking on 11th hour projects with seemingly
