I am very privileged to write about the subjects I love: architecture, history, the arts and people of culture. I have written on a great range of houses, including many important Georgian country houses.

I was shortlisted for the 2006 PPA Award for Specialist Writer of the Year, and in 2007 for IPC’s Specialist Commissioning Editor of the Year.
