ABOUT

Writer. Author. Artist. Hungry. Scamp.

These are some words I’d use to describe myself. More specifically, I’m an HR writer, career writer, author of  the book ‘HR Beyond the Theory‘, international speaker*, painter, food enthusiast and documentarian. And an avid doer, of course.

I live in the Peak District, UK, with my husband. He’s an avid doer too, and an awesome writer.

Just for the fun of it, check out the privacy statement.

*I was a speaker once at an international conference,  so I’m milking it for all it’s worth

IN PROGRESS

Besides the day job as a senior HR professional, this is what I’m working on right now:

  • Writing semi-cool stuff for this and other publications
  • Chilling a bit after publishing my first real book
  • Starting on my new book that I hope to publish this year
  • Reading ‘Kicking the bucket at the drop of a hat’, a book on the origins of phrases
  • Keeping in the loop on LinkedIn (link below)
