Editing – it’s what I love to do!
I love magazines and as a skilled editor (20 years and counting…) I’ve been lucky enough to be a member of the top team on many titles. In recent years I’ve been freelancing as a senior editor on celebrity magazines (OK!, Reveal and Star), women’s lifestyle titles (more! magazine), student and teen publications (Face Up magazine) and business products (Circle Housing’s internal magazine Inside Out).
This has involved the use of a whole raft of skills from editing copy, passing layouts and overseeing team members, to subbing and proofing copy and contributing ideas, in my roles as editor, acting deputy editor and associate editor. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require in-house cover, editing or consultation work.

A few months before entering the jungle to take part in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, I joined TV presenter and model Melanie Sykes for a day at Champneys health spa in Tring to talk about health, fitness and love for an in-depth feature for Ok! magazine. The 43-year-old mum of two revealed how she coped in the aftermath of her painful marriage split from her toy boy hubby Jack Cockings, her secret to staying so amazingly fit and why she doesn’t regret a thing in life. She also gave me a glimpse of her work-out regime and shared the details of her strict, but varied, diet.
This health feature for OK! magazine bigs up the benefits of daily walks and runs, highlights five steps to getting prepped for a big race and pinpoints five events to aim for this year.
