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 co-authored the new CAIE Psychology textbook for Hodder education.
I write regularly for Psychology Review magazine and have recently accepted a role as a permanent editor for this outstanding publication. I also write for the IB Psychology Inthinking website.
