As early as school I had my key skills nailed down: I liked writing and talking. If I wasn’t busy chatting I’d be scribbling down a story or passing gossipy notes around the class. So I guess it was a given that one day I’d become a magazine journalist.
I pride myself on the ability to talk to anyone and everyone. It is easy when you’re as naturally inquisitive as I am. Nosiness aside, it is so important to me that our stories come from the heart. Capturing the essence of a person or a moment is what writing is all about for me.
Please trust that your story is safe in our hands because we know how important it is to get it right. Because this isn’t a story to you, it’s your life.
I am a single mum of two teenagers and enjoy nothing more than listening to people and talking. I trained as a hairdresser in my twenties but my dream was always to write stories.
Sharing people’s amazing, tragic, funny and bizarre stories is a real privilege for me. I’ve been a features writer for 12 years and believe everyone has a story to tell – however big or small. A relaxed chat over a cup of tea and then putting into words what someone wants to say is what I love to do most.
The power of words is amazing and making sure you are completely happy with your story before it is printed in a magazine is always my top priority. Don’t waste another moment – if you’ve got something great to share with others pick up the phone and let’s have a chat right now!
