Features

I write features for anyone who pays me, and a few people who don’t, mainly about family life and travel, but also sport, and mental health.

A few examples are here, though by far the majority of my published articles are not available online any more.
You’re welcome.

Columns

I’ve been a national weekly columnist for both magazines and newspapers, including:

The Telegraph - Three Teens and a Baby.
A national broadsheet weekly column about becoming a mother again at 43, following a 15-year gap after my last three children.
Funny, sad, moving, all entirely true, unfortunately.

Boundless Magazine - Another Life
Funny, true account of my adventures when moving from the UK to Italy, with a 10-month-old baby.

Essentials Magazine - No, It’s Not Just You

A fun, honest back-page monthly column about Those Things We All Do But Nobody Really Talks About…so I do.

Cambridge News - Dear Parenting Guru
Spoof parenting agony aunt column. Very funny. All totally untrue.

Care.com - UK parenting spokesperson and columnist.

And more.

Books

My first books were international best-sellers about family life and trying to survive it.

I’m now working on my first novel, and on two new non-fiction projects.

Oh, and a book about food and travel, in no particular order, but both, I hope, deliciously.
