I’m a journalist with over 25 years experience of writing for national newspapers and magazines – first as a feature writer on various women’s magazines in London (such as Woman’s Own and Bella) and now as a freelancer for popular women’s magazines, websites and national papers such as The Daily Mirror, Daily Express, Tesco Magazine and the Sunday Express Magazine.

In my career I’ve been lucky enough to write about a range of subjects, from health to real-life and travel, which has taken me all over the world to report on everything from orphan orangutan-watching in Borneo to cruising the Caribbean; perfume-making in the Comoros to hiking in the Dolomites ; reliving the golden age of train travel aboard the Orient Express bound for Vienna and capturing the romance of Rajput palaces in India. Nowadays – as far as travelling is concerned – I tend to specialise in dog-friendly holidays, which you can read about on my other site here: www.kickbacktimes.co.uk

I’ve also met hundreds of inspiring people who’ve trusted me with their stories, from children who care for their parents, people battling illness, teachers who go the extra mile, and those who’ve suffered immeasurable loss. I’ve interviewed scores of experts in their field – from doctors to psychologists all over the world – and been a finalist in the Mind Journalist of the Year awards.

In another guise, I work as a copywriter, writing creative and compelling copy for brands and companies and recently I’ve completed my new book ‘222 Ways to Trick Yourself to Sleep’ published by Piatkus in March 2019 and available to order here: https://amzn.to/2ExS32O

I live in Cardiff with my partner Alistair ( a press and TV/film stills photographer) and we have two grown up sons, a cat and a cocker spaniel.
