I’m Belinda: a writer, marketer and creative – and this is my corner of the internet where I share my work.
My writing has been published in newspapers, magazines and online, including the Sunday Times, Glamour, GQ, Fairlady magazine and Fast Company, among others. I’ve written extensively on travel, health, food, finance & entrepreneurship – but I’m comfortable writing on a variety of topics, for a broad range of industries.
I’m the co-owner of digital marketing agency Black Mountain – working with international and South African clients to help them craft and share their stories with the world. Earlier in my career I worked in book publishing in both London and Johannesburg for Penguin, Harlequin and children’s publisher Walker Books, and I also wrote an award-winning parenting & lifestyle blog from 2010-2017, working with brands such as Lego, Mattel, Ford, Unilever and Converse.
Whether it’s dressing up in a giant dog suit for charity, featuring on the cover of a historical romance, or dreaming up stories at my keyboard, being able to work with words every day is both a gift and a privilege.
Thanks for visiting, but most importantly – for reading.
