My words and work as editor on this were signed off by Buckingham Palace and I'm told went right to the top, and I have received some wonderful praise from those that matter.
Generally, I am a freelance journalist, editor and PR consultant working mainly for national newspapers and magazines. I specialise in human interest, real life, health and interior design stories. I also interview authors and set up and style interiors photoshoots.
I am a published author (The Tail of Augustus Moon, Book Guild, 2008) and work for them regularly as an editor, and also restructure and edit books for private clients.
I was launch editor of 'home' magazine in 2010 and editor of various celebrity At Home titles. I have been features editor on Woman and Woman's Own magazines and houses editor on monthly glossies. With three years as head of press of the RSPCA behind me, I also advise on PR strategy, run my own PR Skills for Beginners course and media train Chinese government officials with Larkspur Consulting. I also write website copy and copy edit for national magazines such as 25 Beautiful Homes.
