After having worked in publishing for six years I became a freelance journalist and broadcaster in 2004. I am currently the books editor for Grazia magazine, online and in print.

I was books editor and commissioning editor of Elle magazine for eight years until 2014 and the BBC Radio 2 Arts Show with Claudia Winkleman for a decade. I have reviewed books for the Observer, Telegraph, Independent and many others. I recently returned to BBC Radio 2, to review books for the Sara Cox Show.

I have written features for the Times, Sunday Times, Guardian, Observer, Independent, Telegraph,  Red, Glamour, Grazia, Tatler and The Pool as well as commercial titles such as Rafa’s Mondial magazine, British Airways’ High Life magazine, Virgin Atlantic’s Carlos magazine and Waterstones Books Quarterly.

I was a judge for the Costa Novel of the Year in 2011.
