Liz Fraser is one of the UK’s best-known and respected parenting writers and broadcasters, appearing almost daily on national TV and radio, from ITV1's This Morning and Daybreak to Sky News, BBC Breakfast, LBC radio, BBC 5Live, Channel 5 News and many others.
Liz is also a well-seasoned TV and radio presenter, and so far still has all of her own teeth.
The best-selling author of three hilarious books about the realities of being a parent, she has also written features for The Sunday Times, Red, Grazia, The Daily Mail, Mother and Baby, Marie Claire and Woman, among others, and is a columnist for the parenting website Yano, and is a Mumsnet blogger.
She is now writing her fourth book – a painfully funny dissection of the glorious omnishambles of The Middle Years, called 'No It's Not Just You', now a new monthly column for Essentials magazine.
Liz's politically incorrect alter ego writes the razor-sharp and occasionally downright filthy spoof parenting advice column,‘Dear Parenting Guru...’, http://bit.ly/PLox5F. This is now a monthly magazine column, and Liz is developing it with a BAFTA-award-winning director into a comedy radio/TV series.
Liz has done consulting and promotional work for a wide range of companies from Nokia to Xbox, Ikea to Paramount Pictures, helping them to tailor their products and tap into the huge, highly lucrative parenting market more effectively.
She also gives fabulous, inspirational talks, regardless of whether people want to listen or not.
She has a degree in Experimental Psychology from Cambridge University, and is a key panel member of the think-tank The Centre for the Modern Family.
