Although I work mainly as a writer and editor, I've "sat on both sides of the fence" - in journalism and PR - and understand how the two work together. During my 15 year career, I've contributed to a wide range of national and regional titles covering diverse topics including: lifestyle, adult, food, entertainment, travel, technology, media, PR. I specialise in writing research-based features, news stories, opinion pieces and reviews. With an eye for the succinct and a penchant for sending out a clear message, I favour the use of Plain English at all times.
I co-run the UKPress networking resource for media professionals and PRs (http://www.ukpress.org) and am a co-founder of East Sussex-based online press release distributor, Press Dispensary (http://www.pressdispensary.co.uk).
I also run the consumer-interest travel website, Budget Airline Watch (http://www.budgetairlinewatch.com), and am a regular contributor to 'Living Spain' magazine: a quarterly publication distributed via WH Smith and aimed at people who wish to relocate to Spain or visit for an extended break.
I divide my time between southern England and southern Spain and am well-placed to cover topics concerning Brits in Spain and elements of Spanish culture.
