About

I’m a publisher, editor and author with more than 20 years’ experience developing product and content for a wide range of markets. I’m also a nutritionist, registered with the Association for Nutrition, the only register of qualified nutritionists recognised by Public Health England and the NHS.

My reputation is built on delivering innovative product, dynamic content, effective project management and a willingness to pull out the stops – all delivered with a genuine passion and good humour.

I built my career in London working for leading global publishing houses writing and editing books across all genres, from picture books, fiction and novelty to non-fiction and gifting. I went on to manage publishing programmes and the portfolios of best-selling authors, artists and top entertainment brands. Since qualifying as a nutritionist, I have extended my portfolio to produce nutrition and health communications for both the private and public health sectors.

I am now based in Bath and would welcome the opportunity to help you create content or product that really hits the mark.
