Welcome to my Website
I've had two careers, and have been a journalist since 1996. Before this I was a professional actress and singer which has made me a strong communicator - and I listen!
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.
After I left Yours, I became Editor of Best of British magazine.
Since then, I've been a freelance, writing, book editing (both fiction and non-fiction), and proofreading.
My first book, For the Love of Classical Music, was published in 2015, and this year sees my second book in the pipeline. 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.
