“Abi has written for me both at Metro and the Daily Mail and has always been very reliable and consistent. Her copy is sparky and accurate and she always files to deadline. She is also great at sending in her own ideas — which

is very helpful when you have to generate as

many ideas as we do!”


Tracey Blake, Features Editor


I am a freelance journalist and editor with 18 years of national media experience, specialising in adventure travel and skiing, health and fitness.


My work varies greatly. I have completed four marathons in four days while camping in the snow in Norway for Tatler and Mpora, jumped out of helicopters in northern Iceland for Harrods Travel and Metro, raced a 50ft yacht across the Atlantic for the Daily Telegraph, joined an extreme ski camp in Chile for National Geographic Traveller and while working undercover for Horse & Hound, exposed the illegal trade of horses for slaughter in Europe.


I am also an editorial and communications consultant, copywriter and editor for a variety of clients including Where to Ski and Snowboard.
