I’m a journalist with nearly 20 years experience in newspapers and have worked for the national press for the last decade.
In 2006 I decided to go freelance, and I regularly write for newspapers like the Sun, Daily and Sunday Mirror, Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, Sunday People, Daily Star, Daily Express, Times and Telegraph.
My articles also appear in local newspapers like the Warrington Guardian, which covers my hometown, and the Manchester Evening News.
I’ve interviewed celebrities like Peter Andre, Ben Shepherd, Bev Callard, Sue Johnston, Jennie McAlpine and Pamela Anderson!
My passion is writing human interest stories and I have talked to thousands of ordinary people about exceptional things that have happened in their lives.
My articles cover a variety of subjects, from the first man in Britain to marry his mother-in-law to the story of a glamour model who converted to Islam after meeting her dream man on holiday.
I’ve written more sensitive stories too, giving a voice to families who have lost children at a very young age and interviewed people whose loved ones have passed away in tragic circumstances.
There are many reasons why people find themselves in newspapers.
With the advent of the internet, people put so much information in the public domain that in many cases what starts as a post on Facebook or Twitter can suddenly become headline news.
I’m commissioned by national newspapers to approach people who find themselves in the spotlight to help them share their story.
As an experienced journalist, I know how important it is to treat people sensitively and ensure their story is told in the right way.
People appear in the press if they’ve been involved in a court case, been a victim of a crime or affected by a natural disaster.
They may want to share their story to raise awareness of a particular illness or condition, celebrate their weight loss or finding love against the odds, or speak about a something usual or remarkable they may have overcome.
Many of the people I have interviewed over the years have stayed in contact and returned with follow up stories.
They’ve recommended me to their friends and family when they have been in a position where they have wanted to speak to the press.
