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 specialisms are global development and health. 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 microsites that are sponsored by NGOs or other charities. 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 wrote a blog on bisexuality between 2006 and 2015. I have now moved into writing and thinking about bisexuality and ageing; see the books page for several recent publications on this.
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.
