Working with me
“Lee's expertise, understanding of our editorial style and can-do attitude - often in the face of short-notice deadlines and round-the-world time differences - have made it a pleasure to call on her for copy and ideas, over and over”.
- Liz Edwards, Commissioning Editor, Sunday Times Travel Magazine.
“Lee is a great writer and a pleasure to work with. She has good ideas, always files on time, is professional and is one of the very few freelancers that I can always depend on”.
- Francisca Kellet, Travel Editor, Tatler UK.
“Lee is among my favourite writers for three reasons: her can-do attitude, engaging writing style and high-quality writing. What's more, she's easily one of the nicest, most accommodating freelancers I work with - a bonus on top of such other qualifications. Because of this, she has become the go-to person for Asian features and luxury travel for myself and many other travel editors”.
- Jill Starley-Grainger, Editor-in-Chief, Which? Travel Magazine.
"Those who tell the stories rule society"
Using skills garnered over twenty years working in the travel industry and media, I am uniquely placed to identify what makes a property special and advise on how to elevate it to unforgettable levels. I've worked with urban boutique hotels, eco-retreats, private island resorts and luxury travel brands.
As well as as assessing the overall guest experience, I can also offer ideas and strategies on how to make each property shine - think of me as a kind of hotel fairy godmother.
Publications I have contributed to: The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, National Geographic Traveller, Tatler, The Independent, Elle, Red magazine, Conde Nast Traveller (UK, India, Turkey), Woman & Home, Departures, Jetsetter.com, Which? Travel magazine, Cathay Pacific Discovery, Ultratravel, TTG Luxury, Brides...
As a freelance writer I regularly contribute to some of the world's' most prestigious travel and luxury lifestyle magazines. My experience includes writing and editing city guides, destination features, first-person narratives, round-ups, “best of” lists, hotel, restaurant and spa reviews, interviews, and in-depth consumer investigations.
