About me

I have been a journalist for 20 years, working in-house on top magazines such as Take a Break and working freelance for women’s weeklies such as Bella, Chat, Woman’s Own, Best and others. I also write true life stories and health articles for national newspapers such as the Daily Mail, Telegraph, The Sun and Daily Mirror and I write topical, trending features for online publications such as Red Online.  My new book The Titanic and the City of Widows it Left Behind will be released in March 2020, published by Pen and Sword Books and is available for pre-order at Waterstones and Amazon. I am also a copywriter for businesses and I have written content and advertising copy for some of the biggest brands including Kellogg’s, McCain, Great Western Railway, Royal Bank of Scotland and Argos. I also do workshops and talks about writing and journalism and non-fiction book writing for universities and colleges. Please contact me for more details. NEWS! BOOK LAUNCH EVENT!
