About

I am a journalist and poet living in Bridport, West Dorset. Last year I reached what used to be a pensionable age.

In the 1970’s I was a founder member of the women’s theatre group Cunning Stunts.

In the 1980’s and 90’s, after becoming a winner in the Cosmopolitan Journalist’s Competition in 1985 (in the same week my eldest son was born), I worked as a freelance journalist, in London, for Cosmopolitan, She Magazine, The Evening Standard Magazine and, latterly, with a column on BBC Family Life in which I complained, with jokes, about life with teenage kids.

These days – after a decade lost to illness and Bad Love,  I keep my hand in writing for Positive News  and writing and performing with Some Bridport Poets.

This is my first go at blogging.

  1. I have a bone to pick with you. This morning I was determined to finish some work but instead read through your entire blog about Hector. I’m not even a dog lover, I like cats but have no will power.

  2. Can’t work out what the best dog noise is: clanking of name tag on bowl; water slurping; or snoring? Love dogalogue. Looking forward to tomorrow’s post

  3. Ha, and you’re here too – love the dogalogue! And I’m busy blogging about my mum…do come and visit!

  4. Gill, hope all is well. No postings? Love
    Simon
