A journalist of ten years, I am now a freelance writer, mainly for the Daily Telegraph. My book, 'Mud & The City: Dos and Don'ts for Townies in the Country' is out now and has sold at least three copies in Hatchard's, Piccadilly. I live in a tiny flat in Notting Hill and occasionally venture out beyond the M25 but never without my red wellies. I like champagne, spare batteries, that smug feeling you get after going for a run (I only feel this about once a year) and the odd square of dark chocolate. I don't like non-nice things.
