That was more than two decades ago, and, in spite of those early days, I am indeed happy to say that a professional editor, researcher and writer is what I am today. Over my 20-year publishing career I have held a number of fulfilling positions. I worked for a literature development agency to help support new writing talent. Following that I worked as a journalist and commissioning editor for articles, books and publications, then taught journalism to undergraduates at two London universities.
I’ve also been lucky to have been involved in lots of other really exciting stuff, like speaking at the Marie Claire International Editor’s Conference in Paris and helping many first-time authors become published. Coupled with this, I have obtained a Certificate in Coaching and speak at events on the subject of motivation and achievement.
