Get To Know Me
I have worked internationally as a TV producer, reporter and director for forty years. I am also a journalist who has written hundreds of features for national and international magazines and newspapers.
At 20 I landed my dream job at the BBC in London working for British talk show giant, Sir Michael Parkinson, the British equivalent to David Letterman.
Over a six year period, I was fortunate to work with many of the world’s biggest celebrities and privileged to learn from some of the most talented and inspirational TV production teams.
I went on to set up my own highly successful TV production company working as a London bureau for some of America’s biggest and most successful nightly TV shows, including Extra! and Inside Edition.
As a journalist I have written regularly for the Daily Mail Femail section trying out fashion and beauty treatments for women of our generation, some of it great and some of it, frankly a bit dodgy but it was lots of fun!
I've also created and developed TV formats and discovered new talent in the UK and America.
I’m a daughter, wife, mum and grandma who happens to have turned 60 last year!
My husband Charlie is a New Yorker, novelist,
screen writer, TV producer and journalist.
Charlie and I met when we both worked as producers on the Emmy award winning TV show, Inside Edition.
We had a transatlantic romance followed by a transatlantic marriage and although everyone thought we’d lost our minds, it all worked out in the end!
These days we live (together!) in a London suburb, travelling to New York every chance we get to visit my husband’s family.
I have a daughter, Catherine 32, a son, James, 30, a step son Raf, 32 and an amazing 3 year old grandson, Harvey!
Since the kids flew the nest our accident prone chocolate labrador, Bailey, has been keeping us busy and has featured in various publications over the years including the Huffington Post!
