I have over ten years' experience as a writer and editor, including copywriting, blogging, technical writing, marketing communications, editing and proofreading. I can help create compelling copy for print and digital publications on a variety of topics, in an appropriate style for your brief - from the playful to the serious. I can record and produce professional audio recordings for books and learning materials as an experienced voice actor. I can also write enticing book blurbs for authors. I have flexibility with my working hours and work well to ensure deadlines are met.

A Quiet Place to Die

[login to view URL]'s Book of the Month Highly Recommended! "Explosive" A grieving man is about to wake up a sleepy fishing village and a crooked local builder is about to take one hell of a fall. This is the story of two very different men on a very definite and catastrophic collision course. A gripping and fast-paced 30,000 word novella. Straw Dogs with British bite. "Randall builds and maintains the tension throughout...finally coming together at the end for a highly charged confrontation."

The Holy Drinker

Neil Randall's second novel is a Gogolian fable about a notorious drunkard who is transformed into a vat of magical wine. Highly recommended by The Historical Novel Society

The Butterfly & the Wheel

A stolen manuscript. A rise to the summit of Soviet society. "A powerful, panoramic view of the history of the Soviet Union, told through one man's eyes. This is a novel to savor." -- William Ryan, author of "The Holy Thief"

Trust No One

A dark mystery thriller with a terrifying twist from the author of 'A Quiet Place to Die' A demented tale of ultimate revenge that is not for the faint-hearted. When a renowned film maker's girlfriend disappears from a busy London pub, he fears the worst. But nothing could prepare him for what was about to unfold. A bitter former friend, cultural terrorists and a gruesome discovery direct him to the horrifying truth…

Tales of Ordinary Sadness

Neil Randall's debut short story collection. " an intriguing writer who kept me entranced from start to finish. His writing style is bold, intense, disturbing, thought provoking, and very descriptive, with strong imagery." - Cindy Taylor, AllBooks Review


New psychological thriller from acclaimed novelist and short writer. When an office worker receives a photograph of a grisly murder scene, he thinks it's a prank, not the start of a killing spree where he knows every victim.
