Ellen Arnison

Journalist, writer, blogger, author, mother, wife and occasionally whole person

Following years of tabloid journalism and a bit of PR, I now stay at home most of the time and write for people who pay me. I also mess about on the internet. Finally the work-life balance is within reach. I have written a book called Blogging For Happiness that will be published later this year. I have sons, Boy One, Boy Two, Boy Three and a husband, the Panther of News. My blog is found at
