I’ve been freelancing as a journalist since I was a teenager, becoming a regular contributor to a number of national publications, including the Guardian, The Telegraph, Maxim, NME and Amazon (editorial reviews). I’ve also blogged for The Bookseller and FutureBook and worked as a freelance editor and copywriter.


I ran a regular series for the Guardian called ‘Writers’ Desktops’ between 2011 and 2013.
