If you ask Patricia who she writes for, her answer is invariably, “Anyone who pays”. In reality this tends to be high profile national newspapers and magazines.


A former barrister with distinctly frivolous tendencies, Patricia is equally at home interviewing crusty academics and writing about make-up and shoes.

Some examples of Patricia’s work can be found above. Most are links to online versions, but some are pdfs; let her know if you’d prefer an alternative format.

"Patricia wrote a number of family features for me when I was editor of Telegraph Weekend. Her copy was great - lively, engaging, relevant and very readable - and was much commented on. What's more, she always delivered on time."

Jon Stock

"Patricia has been a fantastic find for us – a self-sufficient freelancer with great initiative, a wealth of original ideas and an impressive range of contacts. She consistently submits lively, intelligent, well-informed copy, often well ahead of deadline, and never fails to meet the standards or challenges presented. Highly recommended."
