About Me
I'm a copywriter and illustrator working in New Zealand. Love words. Collect weird names. Run my own design, brand management and advertising business with my husband/business partner where I write all our copy and get to name stuff. I don't have a Facebook page or any similar social networking presence on the 'Net 'cos I think they are a waste of time. I'd rather talk to real friends. I don't have one favourite word, but I believe that, like colours, they all have their appropriate place. I am fastidious about grammar and punctuation. Sadly, I alphabetise my spice collection. Yes, I prefer English spelling.

Least Favorite Word:

I think this word is overused. And people use it in the wrong way: i.e., they describe something as 'quite unique' or 'very unique', neither of which is possible. 'Unique' means 'one of a kind' and it can't be qualified.
