Occupation Freelance journalist and writer
Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm a freelance journalist and author of three non-fiction books. My last book was 'The Empty Nest: how to survive and stay close to your adult child'. I started writing it when the eldest of my three kids left home ten years ago. There didn't seem to be much advice around so I interviewed other parents to find out how they felt. I soon discovered that the empty nest affects mothers - and fathers - in all sorts of different ways. Moving on to the next stage of life can be a huge challenge - it certainly was for me! But it's turned out to be more fulfilling and exciting than I ever imagined. The new book I'm working on is a total departure! It's the biography of a former Brixton gunman and Sound System legend called Naptali who was shot five times and spent half his life in jail.
