I'm a freelance writer based in Scotland with over 10 years' experience in writing for a variety of publications and websites. While my main interests include lifestyle, parenting, relationships, homes & interiors and property, I'm happy to research almost any topic and produce an article that readers will find informative and engaging.


Coming from a senior editorial role at a glossy magazine, I took the plunge into the world of freelancing having decided against returning to the life of a full-time staffer after maternity leave. That was five years ago and I haven't looked back since.
