I have been a journalist for more than 30 years, during which time I’ve worked both freelance and staff, depending on my other commitments. I currently work as an editorial consultant.
As a freelance writer I’ve had articles published in lifestyle magazines and daily newspapers, brochures, websites, e-learning sites, books and guides, consumer, business-to-business and news publications.
I’ve been the editor of the Eastern Daily Press Norfolk Magazine, Oxfordshire Life magazine, The Guardian UK 300 and the UK’s Top 100 most popular employers for school leavers. For three years I worked as the publishing manager for RECOVERY magazine on behalf of the insolvency professionals’ organisation R3.

How this blog got its name
I called my blog ‘Tales from the Riverbank’ when I first set it up in 2008 because back then I really did live on a riverbank in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside. Though I relocated to my home city of Norwich in 2017 I moved into a townhouse with a river view, so the name still seemed appropriate and it’s stuck.
