A spark of talent, a good pinch of craft and a pound or six of hard work: that’s my recipe for a compelling story.
I am a seasoned writer with a passion for prime property. I have more thirteen years’ experience of the ultra prime and prime property markets in the UK and abroad–particularly market trends and reports, such as this one examining how the prime property market will perform in 2012, this one analysing the world’s most expensive non-urban locations, or this one on the seven most expensive properties outside the UK.
My prime property pieces have appeared on a wide range of established magazines and websites, such as Country Life, Countrylife.co.uk, Country Life International, prime property market intelligence source Palathia.com, Italy magazine, Homes Overseas, Horse & Hound and HORSE.
I also write lifestyle pieces on food, wine, country life and crafting, and credits include Country Life, Decanter, Woman’s Weekly, Ideal Home and The Field.
My work has appeared also internationally in publications such as the Washington Post, House Hunters in the Sun, Wildlife Conservation and Fresh Cup. Read some of my property articles.
Tapping on thirteen years’ experience of print and web writing, I also train work as editorial consultant to the publishing industry for online developments, website relaunches, cross-media integration and competitive analysis projects, with clients such as Marieclaire.co.uk, Housetohome.co.uk, Weddingmagazine.co.uk and Womanandhome.com.
In the past, I have been editor of Country Life International, a thrice-a-year international property and travel magazine sold as a supplement to Country Life; content director for Countrylife.co.uk and Horseandhound.co.uk; editor of the now-defunct Hotelworld.com, a travel website by Associated Newspapers; and associate editor and writer for the Conde Nast Traveller online and Vogue online.
