Memoir success

I’m delighted that my memoir has been shortlisted in this year’s Mslexia awards, reaching the final 12 in this prestigious competition for women writers. My story explores how I attempt to piece my life back together after a diagnosis of complex post-traumatic stress disorder by unravelling the episodes that threatened to unravel me. In teasing out the threads of this painful past, I offer a portrait from places as geographically diverse as Yorkshire, Idaho, and Haiti, paying tribute to the human experiences that bind us as I offer my perspective on life as a journalist, mother, lover and survivor.

I am now seeking representation for my memoir and publication.

I am a journalist, author and speaker. With more than two decades media experience, I am an expert communicator and media consultant with an extensive network, and someone who is committed to supporting news rooms and media leaders to create safe, successful spaces for a more effective and empathetic industry. I have co-authored various ground-breaking reports into the safety of women journalists, the kidnapping of journalists and moral injury and the media, as well as being involved in the development and delivery of curricula and courses on issues including gender-sensitive reporting and countering sexual harassment . My key areas of expertise include journalism safety, mental health, gender and ethics and I have written and spoken extensively on these subjects. I am widely respected for her skills in moderating and facilitating conversations on a range of subjects, have been published by some of world's leading media outlets and am comfortable speaking in front of large audiences. I am also an award-winning author of flash fiction, which has been published widely, and my debut collection is being launched in 2021. I have recently finished my first novel and am now working on a memoir, provisionally entitled 'Aftershocks.'
