I am a self-published author, with over fifteen years' experience in communications strategy, insight and content publishing. I have worked across the public sector, including at the BBC and UK Parliament, and as a senior consultant with charities and public bodies.
My experience writing and publishing outside of traditional publishing models led me to my PhD topic. I am interested in how personality types and demographics can influence how people produce their work, and their chances of success.
I have a particular interest in diversity of author voice and was recently commissioned by UK Parliament to work with creatives with lived experiences to produce illustrated short-stories on change makers across different communities. I have also co-authored a guide to democratic engagement as a commission for the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA).
