About Me

I am a writer, editor, and children’s reading consultant. I trained as a journalist, then worked as an editor at a major publishing house. I now freelance in both professions. See my services page.

You can read my latest article on children’s books in The Independent newspaper here.

I also write literary fiction. I am currently seeking agent representation for my second novel whilst I work on my third.

One of my short stories was recently shortlisted for the Retreat West Short Story Competition 2019.

In 2014, I opened a library in my local primary school and I work as their librarian part-time. In 2017, I won the Barnet Schools’ Award ‘Unsung Hero’. This year I was awarded the winning prize at the PAJES Jewish Schools Awards 2020 for my volunteer work in Etz Chaim Primary School for setting up and running their school library.

In 2012, I was awarded a National Lottery Grant to build a playground in my local park, and in 2017 achieved a zebra crossing outside a local primary school after extensive petitioning. I still campaign on local issues, including for good public library services.
