I’m a mum of two, I work from home as a food, parenting and travel writer and in my spare time (ahaha) I’m an enthusiastic cook and food lover. We live in Buckinghamshire and I’m very happily married to a handsome pilot. We have two teenagers:
#1: our oldest son, Sam (AKA The Mad Professor) is 18, sings like an angel, strums a mean guitar, reads books faster than that bloke off Criminal Minds, has a wit sharper than a razor, is the only tidy person in the whole house and is generally to be found plugged in to the Xbox. Oh and he always smells nice too – all fan mail gratefully received.
#2 son, Charlie: our very own Death Wish Dude is 15 – a guitar playing gym addict with a nose for trouble, an eye for the ladies, an aversion to fruit and veg and an amazing ability to ingest his own body weight in chocolate at one sitting. They’re both growing taller by the minute and give the biggest hugs known to man.
And me? I am a 40-something food and wine enthusiast and frequent flyer. Apart from a small group of my very close and adored friends, I’m rather unsociable (I like my own company – possibly a throwback from hours spent fielding in the sea during childhood beach cricket games: ‘go deep! No, deeper!’). I have a crippling inability to self-edit and a love of beaches (it’s the smell and the sand-between-the-toes) and lip balm. I am a proud member of the Disney 7 (and an all-round Disney fanatic – ask me anything), a member of the International Travel Writers Alliance and am also proud to have been shortlisted in Red Magazine’s Red’s Hot Women Awards … Yup, I think that’s about it. Oh wait…
As a family, we’re mad on travelling and love to explore new places (as long as there’s something to eat). I am a member of the Gatwick Airport Passenger Panel, which aims to improve the experience of all travellers moving through the airport. I represent family travellers on the panel.
After several years living in Ireland, we’re now back home and share English Towers with an evil white cat called Ninja who we love to bits, even though she hates us all.
