As an in-house senior editor, I worked for Pan Macmillan for nine years commissioning and editing across the non-fiction list, specialising in illustrated TV and film tie-ins and popular history books. Previous commissions included the bestselling What Did The Tudors & Stuarts Ever Do For Us? by Adam Hart-Davis,  Invasion by Dan Cruickshank and the official James Bond publishing programme.

I have been a freelance editor and writer for eleven years. A graduate in history from the University of Warwick, I was born in Uganda and grew up in central London and Shropshire. I now live in Bedfordshire with my husband and three children, and work in a slightly leaky shed/office at the bottom of my garden.
