Mel is a freelance journalist who has been writing for national publications for 20 years. She has written for The Sun, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror, as well as magazines including Good Housekeeping, Prima, Red and Woman & Home.

Mel loves the variety of her work. One day she will be fighting for a reader’s consumer rights, the next interviewing a renowned author. Through her writing, she encourages others to squeeze more out of life, whether that’s making their money go further or striving for something outside their comfort zone. She loves telling the inspiring stories of those who have done just that.

A keen runner, she also has a successful sideline as a cook, cleaner and taxi service to her two children, and switches off in the company of a good book or great friends.
