I am a London-based freelance journalist, writer and editor. I also teach journalism to undergraduates.
Much of my work in recent years has been for Guardian News and Media, where I was employed for 10 years. My primary specialism is global development. I was the editor of the Guardian International Development Journalism competition for the five years it was running and also edit, or write for, many of its supplements or microsites that are sponsored by NGOs. Please note that I am not a reporter and almost never pitch ideas, however exciting.
My other specialism is bisexuality. I wrote Women and Bisexuality in the 1990s – the first serious non-fiction book on the subject to be published in the UK. I have written a blog on bisexuality since 2006. I have now moved into writing and thinking about bisexuality and ageing; there will be more about that on this site in due course.
I also have a masters’ degree in Life History Research, looking at the lives of two now-forgotten women writers. One of my main recreational interests is 1920s-30s bohemian London.
