Journalist, writer, sleep thief survivor
I am a freelance journalist and a mother of two little girls – one lively toddler and a baby who will not go the f**k to sleep.
If you are looking for advice on how to have a contented baby or what to expect when you are expecting, then DO NOT read my website or new book (out May 2017) Sleep is for the Weak - an antithesis to baby sleep advice.
However, for some inspiration during those days where you cannot face leaving the house because you have been up all night with a child who has been awake FOREVER- then you might want to check it out!
Before I began banging on about babies, I worked as a journalist for a wide range of newspapers, magazines, websites and business publications. I wrote about everything from health issues and travel to wheelie bins and music. I also got to interview many famous(ish) people including Phil Mitchell, Chesney Hawkes (three times, lucky me) and Poirot.
These days I write words for Metro UK, goodhousekeeping.co.uk, Mirror Online and the New Statesman. I am also a scriptwriter and was a finalist in the Funny Women Awards 2016.
