When I’m not child-wrangling, I’m a freelance writer and editor with over 10 years’ experience, including two years as Features Editor of Mother & Baby magazine.
In my time as a staffer and freelancer, I have built up a strong reputation for delivering high quality copy, to length and on deadline. I have a large bank of resources to draw from when sourcing case studies, as well as a bulging contacts book. My areas of expertise include parenting, health, travel, weddings and real life. I write for a wide range of consumer and contract publications and websites. Please click on the links below to see examples of my work.

I was also – in my dim and distant past – the Periodicals Training Council’s Student Journalist of the Year in 2001, and shortlisted for their Specialist Consumer Journalist of the Year award in 2003. I have NCTJ 100 wpm Teeline shorthand and excellent references, should you require them.
My rates for both writing and editing are available on request.
