I am a freelance journalist, editor, proofreader, copywriter and author.
My writing has featured in Cosmopolitan, Grazia, Prima, Marie Claire, Red, Top Sante, Best, Woman, Mother and Baby, Junior and other publications. My book, Escape Domestic Violence, is published by Hodder and Stoughton in collaboration with British TV show This Morning.
I became passionate about literature at a young age, devouring every book that I could lay my hands on. Growing up, reading was an addiction, it still is. I rarely leave the house without a book in my bag. I read while I eat, while I’m listening to music, while I’m cooking, on the train, on aeroplanes, in cafes, on the beach, in a bath full of bubbles, and in bed until sunrise shines faintly in the sky. The first ‘grown up’ novel I read was Danielle Steel’s The Promise. The second was Barbara Taylor Bradford’s A Woman of Substance. My other interests are magazines, travel, writing, editing, proofreading, cooking and browsing vintage, thrift and book stores.
In summer 2016, after reading and enjoying Han Kang’s The Vegetarian, I decided to read my way around the world, reading books from as many countries as possible, translated into English. Translated fiction is my window to the world. So far, I have read books from Korea, Japan, China, Sweden, Finland, France, Yugoslavia, Canada, Ireland, UK and the USA. I am keeping a record of my translated fiction journey here.
