I started my journalistic career writing about new technology, so found myself in science parks and microchip plants all over Europe and the USA, memorably in California and Arizona.

I soon found my travels more interesting to write about than the computer revolution, but there are many who would disagree.

After editing two computer magazines and writing a book about Women in Computing, I moved into consumer journalism covering lifestyle and travel.

I edited Arabel, the first glossy women’s magazine aimed at Arab women living in London, and also London Portrait magazine, one of the early free distribution glossy lifestyle publications in the capital.

I am Editor of Caribbean World magazine, which I have been involved in since the launch in 1990. I have enjoyed visiting and writing about many of the islands, also interviewing a number of politicians and personalities.

I introduced a section, ‘The Caribbean world of Homes & Interiors’, focusing on real estate in the area, and helped launch the magazine’s website.

I have also edited The Caribbean Property Investor and REAL TRAVEL magazine.

 


 

SPECIALITIES

I write about the Caribbean as well as many other long haul destinations for The Sunday Telegraph, The Express, The Mail, Square Mile magazine, Selling Long Haul, Travel Weekly, City AM and in-flight magazines. I contribute to travel guides and food and travel websites and write a regular travel column for TheSussexNewspaper.com.

I have developed a passion for Africa, particularly Ethiopia, Nigeria and Tanzania and I am interested in tourism in the developing world, as well as architecture and archaeology. I have recently started to contribute to a travel section in Current World Archaeology.

In addition, I continue to write about overseas property development for City publications and cover tourism for the travel trade.

Barbuda: Dreamy days and starry nights in the Caribbean
On Barbuda’s Long Bay, we eat breakfast at the top of the Lighthouse admiring the stunning 360 degree view of the Caribbean. A frigate bird passes by, but otherwise there’s nothing in sight. At night, we return to the lighthouse for cocktails. There are stars by the million, but we feel like the only people on earth.

Dreadin' It - To Jamaica's Bob Marley Museum
We think it’s marvellous that you ladies have come on this trip’ squeaked two young women who were occupying the seats in front of us on the five-hour Zion Bus tour taking us from Ocho Rios, Jamaica to the Bob Marley Mausoleum, Nine Mile. The village of Nine Mile in the rural parish of St Ann is where Bob Marley was born and where he is buried.

Ethiopia - Could it become a tourist destination?
We emerge blinking into the Ethiopian sunshine like Indiana Jones coming up from an archaeological adventure, to find a hermit has made his home in one of the holes in the rocks around the churches of Lalibela. Remains of mummified bodies are piled neatly in the walls, their dry brown bony toes sticking out obligingly for passing tourists to photograph.
