I have been writing about international film for various print and online publications for the past decade, and currently edit bi-monthly UK film mag movieScope. Dedicated to the craft of filmmaking and the art of cinema, it's a must-read whether you're a movie maker or film fan.
I have loved films ever since I saw Gone With the Wind on TV one Sunday morning, and while studying cinema at Leicester University I became a reviewer for the student paper, Ripple, taking over as Film Editor in my final year.
After graduating I got a job at the UK's longest running movie mag Film Review where I worked my way up from producation assistant to becoming the first female Editor in its history. I have written about film and culture for a variety of magazines and websites, including BBC Online, Little White Lies, Filmstar and Kodak's In Camera, and am a member of the Alliance of Women Film Journalists and British Society of Magazine Editors.
I am currenly in the process of updating and streamling Roll Credits; apologies for any out of date content and thank you for your patience!

Opening today, Friday June 12, is British horror comedy Doghouse. Starring a wealth of English talent, including BAFTA Award-winning Noel Clarke (Adulthood), Danny Dyer (Severance) and Stephen Graham (The Damned United), the film concerns itself with zombies. But not just any zombies. No, these are - and are you ready for this, boys - female zombies with a thirst for male flesh. Blimey.
The lads encounter these man-mad zombies while on a boozy weekend in the village of Moody, and soon realise that they must fight for their own survival. As the tagline puts it; 'The battle of the sexes just got bloody'. Indeed.
Directed by Jake West (Evil Aliens), and also starring Rise of the Footsoldier's Terry Stone, East is East's Emil Marwa and Emmerdale's Adele Silva, Doghouse hits cinemas today and you can check out the trailer below.
