About me

Hello! I’m a journalist and author – I write a weekly comment column in The Sunday Times. I also write a weekly beauty column in The Sunday Times Style section.  I’m the author of four novels and four non-fiction books, all of which are published by Penguin

I’m 49 and have three children, two stepchildren and one dog. I live in divine Suffolk with my partner. I also have an imaginary shop in my head. I really like stuff. The things on these pages are what I’d sell in my imaginary shop – like a scrapbook of everything I like. Everything is 100% a completely subjective, personal recommendation.  If I like something, it’s because I think it’s great. Nobody has paid me to feature anything or to be nice about anything.

There’s no comment facility because the days are short enough as it is, frankly, but I can always be contacted via Twitter
