I write features for anyone who pays me, and a few people who donโ€™t, mainly about family life and travel, but also sport, and mental health.

A few examples are here, though most of my published features are missing, because I havenโ€™t got the time to find it all and upload it.
Youโ€™re welcome.


Iโ€™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, Itโ€™s Not Just You

A fun, honest back-page monthly column about Those Things We All Do But Nobody Really Talks Aboutโ€ฆso I do.

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

And more.


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

Iโ€™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.
