I’m an author and journalist. My first book, Salt on Your Tongue, is published by Canongate. It’s a nonfiction story about women, art and the sea, and the epic nature of childbirth, told through the myths and legends of salt water.

I’m the radio critic for the Daily Telegraph and I also write about arts, books and the Eurovision Song Contest. My radio columns are in the newspaper every Wednesday and Saturday and every month in Prospect Magazine I write a column about podcasts.
