I am a freelance features journalist with the best part of a decade’s experience writing, editing and commissioning for national newspapers and magazines. My work has appeared in The Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail, Red magazine, Women’s Health, Grazia, the New York Post, the Guardian, and the Observer, among others.
My first book, Life, Almost: Miscarriage, misconceptions, and a search for answers from the brink of motherhood, is being published by Transworld on February 9th, 2023.
Before going freelance, I was Deputy Editor of Good Health, the Daily Mail’s weekly health section, and before that I was an Associate Features Editor at the title.
I specialise in women’s health and enjoy unravelling and explaining science and medicine so it can be understood by even the most hopeless of arts graduates (like me). In 2019, I was highly commended in the freelance writer of the year category at the Medical Journalists Association Annual Awards. I also won an Association of British Science Writers’ award in 2016 for a piece on myths about the human metabolism.
As well as my journalism work, I am the author of the blog The Uterus Monologues, where I write about my own experience of recurrent miscarriage and share the stories of others who have not had a straightforward path to parenthood. I am always interested in commissions that address fertility, pregnancy and loss in all their complexity.
