As a professional marketer for nearly twenty years, she writes a lot for work – blogs, eBooks, thought leadership reports, web content, email campaigns and more.

Q: What is the first book you remember reading or having read to you as a child?

A: The tiger who came to tea by Judith Kerr – I’m sure it planted the seed for my love of cafes as a place to go to solve problems ever since!


Q: What is the least interesting part of writing for you?

A: Getting a story ready to submit, because by then I’m usually too close to my writing and blind to any (often obvious) errors! I’m learning to park ‘finished’ stories for a couple of weeks to let them breathe and then I can come back to them with fresh eyes and actually finish them.


Q: Is there a book that you keep going back to, and if so, how many times have you read it?

A: I love Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic. It was my inspiration to get started with creative writing and trust in the process, rather than worrying if my stories are any good. I re-read it periodically to keep the dream alive.
