I’ve always been seduced by the power of words and stories. As I child I refused to leave the house without a book and if no paper was available I would write on the walls or chairs. This passion (or obsession) still continues – you never know when the inspiration or opportunity to read or write will emerge.
My love of writing led me to Nottingham University in the UK, where I attained a BA Honours Degree in English and Media Studies. I then explored all things to do with language and communications – trying my hand at teaching English as a foreign language, followed by a long career in marketing, managing international campaigns for leading brands such as Gap, Calvin Klein and H&M.
A nomad at heart, I lived in Italy for a while, then sunny Sydney’s ocean and southern skies enticed me to put down roots for over a decade. Here I wrote on a freelance basis for communications agencies and businesses – focusing on my passion for health and lifestyle, and completed a Master of Arts at Sydney University. I’m now based in London, seeing where the next path takes me.
Frittering my time away reading no longer makes me feel guilty now I know the best way to become a better writer is to read and write…a lot. When I’m not reading or writing I can be found practising yoga (I’m a trained yoga teacher), dancing salsa, eating or walking my dogs.
Enough about me. I hope my stories, articles and poems inspire and entertain you. I welcome your comments and feedback and look forward to assisting you with any writing projects. ”
