Freelance Journalism

I have spent over two decades  providing and writing real-life news and features for national newspapers. I’ve interviewed countless people from every walk of life. Whether it be a celebrity, a campaigner or a slimmer whose lost half their body weight – the stories are endless and vary from the most atrocious of crimes to wonderful and incredible acts of kindness.

My work has appeared in national newspapers including The Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Sun, The Express as well as best-selling weekly magazines such as Take a Break, That’s Life, Bella, Chat, Pick Me Up and Closer and Slimming Work Magazine.

I also place interviewees on local and national daytime and news programmes including This Morning, Good Morning Britain, Loose Women and The Victoria Derbyshire Show.

If you are looking for an experienced freelance journalist or you have a story to tell, please get in touch.


I commissioned Michelle for Take a Break more times than I can count. She was one of my favourite, most trusted freelancers to work with. She was always the consumate professional, a wonderful storyteller and lovely to deal with at all times. Any publisher and interviewee will be in very safe and experienced hands with Michelle. I couldn’t recommend her any more highly. Thanks for all your hard work Michelle, it never went unnoticed.
