Hi there and thanks for stopping by. I'm Cathy, an author, journalist, mother, cyclist, nature girl, aspiring photographer and a bunch of other adjectives.

I'm the author of three books:

Brilliant PR

What To Do When You Win The Lottery

The Girl's Guide to Life on Two Wheels

I worked as a staff journalist for more than ten years for a range of weekly and daily newspapers and magazines. Most recently I was deputy editor of PRWeek, the bible of the PR industry. In 2011 I left full-time employment following the birth of my first child, and until 2013 I worked freelance for a range of clients including Aegis Media, Carat, Philips, SCA, TMW and Reckitt Benckiser as a creative, content creator and social media consultant.

Since 2013 I have focused exclusively on editorial work, primarily for The Telegraph both online and in print, but also Red, Zest.co.uk, Total Women's Cycling and other women's lifestyle and cycling publications and websites.

I live in the leafy SW London/Surrey borders with my husband Noel, our two daughters and two guinea pigs. I love pondering on as well as experiencing motherhood, taking photographs, running, cycling, yoga, time outdoors, writing, reading, creating messy artworks with my children and drinking tea.
