I started writing professionally whilst working as an assistant psychologist with Professor Sue Buckley at Down Syndrome Education International, a charity supporting children and young people with Down Syndrome. I was lucky enough to learn alongside highly esteemed colleagues and realised my love for writing and editing whilst working as sub-editor of one of our in-house publications, Down Syndrome News and Update and authoring booklets for the Downs Syndrome Issues and Information series.
Since then, I have co-authored two Edexcel A Level Psychology student textbooks and two revision guides for Illuminate Publishing and authored an online course for Cambridge International A Level students. This year, I am undertaking another very exciting publishing project so watch this space!
I also write regularly for Psychology Review magazine and the IB Psychology Inthinking website. Please see below for further examples of my work.
