Freelance writer and blogger. Currently in training to become a credible negotiator. Reformed gym bunny turned connoisseur of coffee, cake, and red wine. Fairly sure it's supposed to be the other way round, but luckily my negotiating mentor keeps me pretty fit - she's a stubborn 15 month old (and I am consumed with love, so we reach an impasse most days). In reality, I was defeated the day she was born.
