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.

Publications

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. "Randall...is 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

Isolation

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.
