I started my career as a newspaper journalist (LONDON); wrote/directed games for (HOLLYWOOD) Studios; became a digital media executive (NYC); and am now a ghostwriter (GLOBAL).
…. some of the brands + projects* I’ve worked on.
*As a director, producer and digital media exec.
Harper’s BAZAAR (Australia) commissioned me to write about jumping off the corporate ladder.
That’s not me in slinky satin and vertiginous heels. I wear Doctor Martens.
ELLE CHINA gave me an assignment, and a spot on the contributors page.
In case you were curious, the cover story was an extensive interview with the entrepreneur Sophia Amoruso (which the editors translated into Chinese).
…as did ESQUIRE Latin America.
nope, I don’t speak Spanish either – they translated me.
The Screen Directors Guild of Ireland invited me to speak about Mayfair Brooks, my 13-part mobile drama series, commissioned by Pocket Gems.
The Journal (Dublin) ran a feature on my career, which was very nice.
Hay House published How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World (Feb 2014).
Most grateful to the editors of O, The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Red and BBC Radio 4 who interviewed me and/or ran extracts.
Almost a decade ago I became a ghostwriter.
I never expected, or even really planned, this. But it does suit me. However, I can’t tell you anything about it. Or even the name I use in that career.
Currently, when not ghostwriting, I’m working on another novel – set in 1890*.
*yes, you read that right.
Finally, why “teamgloria”?
I registered this domain in 2011, when I was working as a high-flying executive in NYC, and got diagnosed with three tumo(u)rs in my throat. I had to be anonymous (due to the j.o.b) and so wrote as “gloria”, a sweeter character than I, in an effort to see the sunnier side of life. It worked. I now do.
