A background in communications

I am a journalist - a professional communicatorMost of my work has been with local newspapers and magazines where I rose to the position of commissioning editor of a glossy monthly magazine.  I chose what I wanted to go into the title, commissioned writers, edited their work and oversaw the production process.  

I am now living on the coast in semi-retirement but still use my skills to edit Quest, the international journal of the Queen's English Society.  As can be imagined, my English has to be spot-on for this role, although I have the services of a team of top proofreaders. 

I am a former member of British Mensa and a member of the institute of Advanced Motorists.  I was a local councillor for about 26 years and a Parliamentary candidate in the 2005 and 2010 General Elections.
