I am a journalist, author, editor, and copywriter with more than 25 years’ experience in national newspapers and magazines including staff jobs on the Daily Mail, Sunday Mirror, GLAMOUR and Mother & Baby, where I was editor. Am now freelance, writing regularly for the Telegraph platforms and other titles from the Mail on Sunday to the i Paper. My new book The Insomnia Diaries: How I Learned To Sleep Again (£9.99) is being published by Octopus Books on 10th June 2021.

After 30 years in North London, I am currently living in Chigwell, Essex, where I spend a lot of time in the nail bar. Mum to two smashing teenagers.
