I have worked in several fields: stage management, marketing, writing, publishing. All of these have called for strong organisational skills. Not just in terms of logistics but also in organising thoughts and ideas.
With my husband I set up and ran my own publishing company, White Ladder Press, publishing quirky books on family, home and health topics. As a writer I've written well over 50 books, including Decision and Work Overload in the 'Fast Thinking' series, which I also series edited, and The Ultimate Book of Business Creativity. I also wrote How to Get Things Done (without trying too hard) under a pseudonym.
I live five miles from Totnes in an old farmhouse which I have renovated over the years, with a garden I love working on and developing.
