About me

Though my career has been varied, writing and violence

has remained a constant. I have worked in PR, teaching,
psychotherapy and cage fighting to increase my
knowledge, skill set and to improve my right hook. My
first book, Confessions of a Tinderella, due for publication
(Penguin Radom House) in May 2015; in the meantime,
my search for opportunities in journalism and punching
renowned editors in the face continues.
