A broadcast journalist by profession, I spent many years working for the BBC, which enabled me to travel the globe reporting on foreign current affairs documentaries for both Radio and TV. These days, however, I'm more likely to be exploring the furthest reaches of my imagination since completing a MA in Creative Writing. A self-confessed bibliophile... I not only love books, for the past year or so, I've been working hard to write my own. Married to a Frenchman, we have a gorgeous little bilingual son who is, I guess, another reason why my endless continent-hopping couldn’t continue. However, I do miss it! No doubt that is part of my motivation for joining Air BnB – the desire to connect with people in different parts of the world as well as give us the chance to still afford holidays off the beaten track so that I don’t lose my travelling edge completely.
