I was born in Salisbury and grew up in Wiltshire. In 1996, I graduated from The University of Sheffield with a First Class Honours Degree in English Literature.

I have worked as a TV-Listings Writer for Broadcasting Dataservices (part of Red Bee Media), a Proofreader and Editorial Assistant for The Yellow Partnership in Manchester, a Reader for Pindar Set (now Yell Adworks) and, most recently, a TV-Listings Sub-Editor for Global Listings.

After gaining an MA in Creative Writing (Pass with Distinction) from Bath Spa University, I moved to Bristol and set up The Whole Proof.

I am currently listed on Find A Proofreader.
