As a writer and editor, I have enjoyed many years meeting and interviewing many fascinating people, and visiting wonderful locations worldwide.
Reporting on the European health and fitness market, I became an industry commentator and I have written extensively about health clubs, gyms, the spa market and leisure industry in the UK, Europe and USA. Interviews with business leaders, politicians and decision-makers included Sir Richard Branson, Tom Peters and David Lloyd.
Now I also specialise in profiling authors and artists for magazines, websites and radio. Browse this website for my articles on Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Antony Gormley, Rose Tremain, Esther Freud and Cressida Cowell among others.
I chair and organise author talks for children and adults. Past events include Alexander McCall Smith, Margaret Drabble, Victoria Hislop, Griff Rhys Jones, Kate Mosse, Deborah Moggach, Maggie O'Farrell, Michael Morpurgo, Katherine Grainger, Alan Johnson MP and many more.
I hope you will enjoy reading this selection of my articles, reviews and recommendations.
