About Me

I am an award-winning editor, journalist and novelist who has worked across the national press, women’s glossies, weeklies and digital channels for more than twenty years. Most recently, I was the editor-in-chief of Condé Nast Brides, where I headed up the market-leading print title, consistently the UK’s No1 best-selling bridal brand. I oversaw all the digital channels – with a total social following of nearly four million – and the events, including the largest live event, Brides the Show, all of the seasonal catwalk shows and the new Brides Beauty Hub.

One of the most satisfying elements of the job was the huge variety of brands that I worked with, helping to promote their businesses through well-thought-out creative projects that we knew our readership would immediately respond to. I loved getting close to the dedicated and loyal readership, couples all over the country who trusted us to guide them through one of the most important stages of their lives. After eight years in the job, it was still just as fascinating and inspiring . It also helped me to achieve the long-held dream of becoming a published author. June 2018 saw the launch of my debut novel, The Almost Wife, with a follow-up, What I Didn’t Say, published in October the same year.

Today I write for other leading titles including The Sunday Times Style, The Mail On Sunday‘s YOU magazine, The Telegraph, the Tatler Weddings Guide, Glamour and Stella magazine. I am also one of the Mail on Sunday’s regular fiction and non-fiction book reviewers.

I split my time between London and the Cotswolds where I live with my husband and two daughters.
