I am a features writer with a strong background in national magazines and newspapers. I was trained as a news reporter, and I have done some sub-editing. I have extensive commissioning and editing experience. I specialise in health, real life and celebrities. I have a real interest in personal development, parenting and mental health, which I write about a lot. I have been freelance for 10 years and I have strong links with Express Newspapers, contributing regularly to the paper and S Magazine. I also write for various other women's titles.

Fully NCT trained. Extensive real life and health background with the requisite legal knowledge. After leaving my last staff role at a woman's weekly 10 years ago, I have been successfully freelancing and generating my own stories and article ideas.
I spent five years as a freelance commissioning editor at The Daily Express, and I now work for two days a week as a writer/editor at S Magazine, the supplement for the Sunday Express. In addition, I compile a weekly celebrity interview for the paper and I continue to contribute to various magazines.
