Not just travel .....

Besides travel, I write articles on health, wellbeing, food, beauty, lifestyle, history (without the boring bits), animal welfare, pets, humour, arts & culture and the supernatural. I write books too, 11 so far. See home page for more details.  Book 12 will be published by Amberley Pubishing in July 2020.


My bylines have appeared in many titles, mainly print, including the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Evening Standard, Daily Express, CNN, Metro, BBC magazines, Woman's Own, Health & Fitness, The Sun, Daily Mirror and The Scotsman. I have also had features published in the USA, Canada, India, Singapore, Australia, S Africa Thailand and Sweden.

"Congratulations on writing such a lovely feature.  I really enjoyed reading it.  Considering it is about a children's oncology ward, you have succeeded in making it both light hearted and heart warming. I am sure our readers will agree with me.  [JdeB, Real Life Editor, My Weekly.]


"Gilly this is a great piece, sensitively written. A difficult subject to write about but yet again, you have succeeded in coming up trumps.  Thank you. [Features Editor, Daily Mirror]


"I enjoyed your article immensely, your tone is perfect." [ Food & Drink Editor, Sainsbury's magazine.]


Your feature highlighting the problems that these families face was super.  Emotional yet down to earth, precise and utterly readable.  Well done. [Features Desk, The People]


 "Gilly, I'm looking for some fun feature suggestions.  Are you feeling inspired because you always have such great ideas!" [Editor, Chat Specials]


"Many thanks for the copy. I really like it – it reflects the fun of the feature, but the tips are achievable and easy. Please send your invoice, and I’ll get it paid straight away." [ Health, My Weekly]

"Thank you for this, factual but full of quirky points and written with a light touch.  Just right for our purposes." [JM Editor, Scots magazine.]


 "Your piece is great!  Just what I wanted. Looks and reads a treat.  Thank you!" [Features Editor, Take a Break magazine]
