My name’s Caroline, and I love words.
I used to write and edit them mostly for magazines, newspapers, websites and apps, as well as copywriting for brands. In the background of that though, I was pretty much always trying to write books, and finally, in 2019, I managed it. Hurrah!
Through The Wall came out in 2019, was released across multiple foreign territories and in a proper pinch yourself moment, was even a Sunday Times Bestseller. I stood in front of it and took photos in a lot of places. See above.
My second novel The Baby Group followed in September 2020 and I signed a new deal along the way with two more books scheduled for 2022. The first one, Five Days Missing, is available to pre order now. Yes, my RSI was pretty bad in 2021.
Journalism wise, I have worked for most of the top brands in the country, including Stylist, Grazia, Marie Claire, The Pool, Refinery 29, Heat, Now, Cosmopolitan, Fabulous, Look, The Mirror, The i, The Independent, Mush, The Telegraph’s Wonder Women, The Guardian, Metro and Yahoo.
Copywriting clients have included top-name brand agencies like The Sunshine Company where I worked on the Baileys Prize For Fiction, Warehouse and Boden, Homemade (through creative agency Gravity Road), media companies like Virgin Media, Hearst and Telegraph Media and websites like NCT and student.com, where my role was to help push through more bookings with sparkling, inviting copy.
I also have experience contributing to TV and radio outlets like Sky News, Channel 4 and Radio 5 Live, writing non-fiction books, tweeting for brands, blogging and writing for apps. Basically, I am a big fan of words (preferred kind: puns).
