A graduate in history from the University of Warwick, I was born in Uganda and grew up in central London and Shropshire. I worked in-house as a senior editor at Pan Macmillan for 9 years commissioning and editing across the non-fiction list, specialising in media and film tie-ins, popular history, illustrated lifestyle and gift books. After moving to Bedfordshire, I worked as a freelance editor and writer for 10 years and now work in-house at the book packagers Tall Tree in St Albans.
