I am an experienced freelance music, entertainment and lifestyle journalist, writer and biographer. My recent books are available to buy in WH Smith stores around the country. I have a bulging contacts book and several regular commissions for magazines and websites. I have eight years' editorial, production, publishing and writing experience, working both in-house and freelance. I am always looking for new projects. Most recently I have written two music biographies - Take That: Back 4 Good and Robbie Williams: The Greatest Living Englishman. I have also been involved in the launch of a new music magazine - as editorial consultant, then as editor, throughout its development.
