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 10 years commissioning and editing across the non-fiction list, specialising in media and film tie-ins, popular history, illustrated lifestyle and gift books. Now living in Bedfordshire, I work as a freelance writer and editor, have authored over eleven books and project manage a variety of high-profile non-fiction.
