Welcome to my Website
I've been a journalist since 1996. Before this I was a professional actress and singer which has made me a strong communicator.
Working firstly on the Rutland & Stamford Mercury, I progressed to Writer/Sub on Yours magazine, working my way up to becoming the magazine's Associate Editor and Head of Features.
Latterly I was Editor of Best of British magazine.
I've been freelancing for some years now, the majority of my work being book editing (both fiction and non-fiction), and proofreading.
At the beginning of 2015, I was commissioned to write my first book, For the Love of Classical Music, which was published in October of that year.
This year sees another book in the pipeline, and I'm also enjoying a mixed bag of editing – books, essays and website copy, from gardening and travel to social history.
PS I've recently added a Music For Hire page of music to buy or hire. Do take a look. And there's more about the music in my life if you click onto My Music.
