Freelance writer from Cornwall
Hi there. I’m a freelance writer based in West Cornwall. I’ve worked on a wide variety of subjects, but I’m best known for True Crime, Military History, Motorsport History and Disability issues. When I’m not in Truro you’ll probably find me track-side at the Le Mans 24 Hours. I’m happily engaged, with three children. I enjoy reading, coffee and days out, when my life isn’t being run by Mistress Midnight, the family cat.
The blog is partly a personal thing, but it’s mainly an informal shop window. Any of the posts can be expanded, edited and otherwise hammered into a full article if required. It’s as much a chance to show what I can do and which areas I tend to specialise in as for me to scribble so, if you like what I do then drop me a line and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. I tend to work more for fees, but I don’t mind doing the occasional freebie for a good cause or a decent writing credit.
I’ve been an expert consultant on true crime for BBC Radio 4 series (Punt P.I) and I’ve contributed to various publications including The Big Issue, New Internationalist, Crime Magazine, History Is Now, Lotus Remarque, Historic Lotus Register and Festival Eye among others. I can do print, online and radio work when available.
I’m prompt, reliable, professional, flexible and affordable and I’m always happy to consider jobs outside of my usual specialisations. It helps keep the job interesting and stops me getting stale. So, if you like my CV and you’re looking for a pen for hire then drop me a line and we can talk business.
I can be contacted via comments here, at my email address plymouthpilgrim @ hotmail.co.uk (just remove the spaces as they help me avoid spammers and scam artists), via my Twitter account @RobertWalsh75 if you want to comment, talk business or just to say hello. All the best,and get in touch if you feel like it.
