an author, journalist, presenter and public speaker.
Despite regularly having to write a “bio”, I find the process a bit self-promoting and awkward. With that stated, so as to protect me from your judgement, please continue to read on for a list of my achievements. All of these can be explored on the pages of this website.
I’ll start with my proudest accomplishment to date: on 22nd April 2014 I got clean and sober from a cocaine and alcohol addiction that almost stole every good thing from my life. I was in Paris at the time and with the help of supportive friends, a local church and support group meetings, I turned my life around.
During 2020’s lockdown I had a book commissioned by publishers SPCK. Notes on Love: Being Single and Dating in a Marriage Obsessed Church, is out in July 2021 and I can’t wait to release her into the wild. There will be a podcast mini-series, Conversations on Love to celebrate the launch of the book that will be out in June 2021. I also am the host of The Good Pod Guide, a podcast designed to help you discover your next great listen without trawling through hours of content. Plus I work as a ghost writer, but you know I can’t tell you any more about that.
I’m also the proud owner of a Blue Peter badge and have a grade four ice-skating. I feel I should reward anyone who has bothered to read this right to the end with a nugget of new information that you can’t find anywhere else. So, I will take the opportunity to confess that I brush my teeth with warm water. I like it better, it’s like a hug in my mouth and I think everyone should do it too.
