Extra information:

As a freelance writer, editor and blogger, I write for a wide range of print and online publications in the UK and internationally.

Blogging forms a large part of my work and I do a lot of regular pro-blogging for various companies, on topics such as property, homes and interiors, travel, health and crafts.

I was previously editor of Health Today magazine, Buying Abroad magazine and ghost-editor of a parenting magazine. I won the online journalism award in the 2004 Medical Journalism Awards.

I've written several books, both as an author and ghostwriter. My titles include Running and Skin Cancer and Sun Safety: The Essential Guide, and I was a contributor to Good Housekeeping: 1000 Home Remedies.

In addition to other freelance work, since 2009 I've run the interior design blogs Fresh Design Blog ( and Cosy Home Blog ( Fresh Design Blog has been one of Cision’s Top 10 Interior Design Blogs in the UK since 2011.
