Journalism

I’m a journalist of more than 25 years’ experience, starting out on magazines including Cosmopolitan and New Woman (RIP). Then I hacked it for several years at the Daily Mail and Sunday Mirror before heading back to glossies and the launches of GLAMOUR and Grazia. After having two babies I became editor of Mother & Baby, where I was twice nominated for a British Society of Magazine Editors award.

Now a freelance writer and editor, I cover a wide variety of topics, with an interest in health, both mental and physical. I am a regular contributor to the Telegraph newspapers, magazines, and online, where I wrote a weekly column called Insomnia Diaries. I also interview people with interesting stories to tell, and write ‘opinion pieces’. I’ve recently been published in titles as diverse as the Spectator, the Jewish Chronicle and the New York Post.

My freelance CV includes: The Telegraphs: Daily and Sunday, Stella, Telegraph Magazine, Guardian, iNews, Mail On Sunday, Daily Mirror, Sun, Express, You, Red, Woman & Home, Fit & Well, Hello!, Woman’s Journal, Just 17, Brides, Camden New Journal, and… Competitors’ World.

I worked as a freelance editor on the Saturday Telegraph Review of the Year, 2020: Remembering the Year to Forget.
