About me

I started my career as a married banker in New York City and somehow ended up as an unmarried writer living between London and New York. Much happier, much poorer. I write for Indagare, The Women’s Room Blog, Columbia College Today and other titles. I was awarded an MA with Distinction in Creative Writing from Kingston University in 2014. The title of my thesis: Table for Two: Finding Mr Wrong. Many moons ago I got an MA from Columbia Journalism School of which I have joined the board.  Yes, I love learning and sharing what I learn on my web site. I joined 26 in 2012 thanks to my marvellous author, writing coach and friend Elise Valmorbida. I help edit 26’s monthly newsletter, contributed to 26 Characters at the Story Museum in Oxford and the 26 Designs project for Fiera magazine. For fun I am a culture vulture, Instagram addict and crazed pug owner.
