Regular contributor to: In the past, I have regularly written for Reuters, the Associated Press, the Guardian, the Guardian's Global development site, and the Africa Report.

Other information: I have worked in France, Spain, the Ivory Coast, Senegal and Kenya. Now living in St Albans, UK, I am rekindling my freelance career after taking a break to write my second novel, which was published in July 2017. I have a deep understanding of development topics, particularly in relation to African countries, and I have also written on everything from fashion to film, conflict to climate change, and the European Union to fiction-writing.
