    Biography

    I've been a freelance journalist for 17 years & live near Winchester, Hants with my husband. I specialise in health, consumer & human interest. I've had articles published in the Mail on Sunday, Daily Mail (Health & Femail), Glamour, the Daily Express, the Daily Mirror, Woman’s Own, Prima, Reveal, Take-a-break & Best, among others. I have also worked as a teacher and an EV (external verifier) for a magazine journalism course at a local FE college & University.

    My other role is as a mum of three and carer. I've had a self-help book published by Jessica Kingsley, London, about my experiences bringing up a child with a rare chromosome disorder & I wrote a chapter for a book entitled the ‘Genetics of Mental Retardation,’ (Karger) for the New England Journal of Medicine. I have given talks and presentations about my experiences to healthcare professionals & other parents, and am on the advisory committee for SWAN (Syndromes Without a Name). Last year, I came 2nd out of 28 entries for Epilepsy Scotland's Journalist of the Year Award.
