About

My book, The Girls’ Guide to Growing Up Great is a guide to puberty for girls aged around 10 and up.  With contributions from psychotherapist, Laura Chaisty, and GP Dr Maddy Podichetty, it’s an empowering, kind and supportive guide to this tricky time which covers all the facts and considers some of the bigger picture questions (Do looks matter?  Does *everyone* need a BFF? Is a crush ever wrong?).  It’s packed with cool and quirky illustrations by the fabulous Flo Perry and there’s also lots of space for doodling and dreaming…

I started off working for women’s glossies back in the ’90s straight after leaving uni with a Masters’ in Women’s Studies.  I left to work in PR for a natural beauty company and along the way moved from London to Oxford, where I now work as a PR for designer, Bianca Elgar, a Comm’s Editor for Pembroke College, Oxford, and Ad Sales Manager for The Chiltern Society and – of course – a freelance writer for anyone asking.
