About Me

I’m Kerrie McDonald, owner, PA and general dogsbody of The Writing Nook. I’m a copywriter who can write the words you need for your business.

I’m an affordable, approachable copywriter who works with small businesses and agencies. My focus is on technology and IT companies, writing clear, concise copy that’s easily understood.

I write content that’s easy to read and good for SEO.

I’ve worked with clients across many areas:

  • not-for-profits including disability services and community organisations,
  • manufacturing,
  • education,
  • IT and technology,
  • small business,
  • alternative health and wellness,
  • the arts,
  • and renewable energy to name a few.

I also work for several marketing agencies writing articles, case studies and blogs for their clients.

While I’ve always had a love of writing, my original background is in IT.  I worked primarily as an analyst/programmer, but have also been IT Support and a network engineer. As a writer and an IT nerd, I have the ability to translate “tech-speak” into understandable plain English.

As well as copywriting, I’m a published fiction author as Kerrie Paterson. I’ve also written feature articles for niche magazines and newspapers (in particular Scouts and homeschooling), so I know how to tell a story.

Why did I call my business The Writing Nook?

A nook is ‘a corner or recess, especially one offering seclusion or security’. I’m currently living in a tiny cottage that’s over 150 years old, so the rooms are quite small. It’s lucky that I love to write in small places – it makes me feel safe and boosts my creativity.

In the next few years I plan to buy a campervan and travel Australia while I continue writing – so then my office really will be a ‘nook’!

If any of my story sounds like I’d be a good fit for your writing project, give me a call on 0490 083 591 or shoot me an email!
