‘Editing the NUJ’s magazine means you’re never short of good journalists suggesting contributions. Linda is one of the best. She does a regular feature for us looking at journalism around the country. It is well read and rightly so, she always produces very professional, interesting, readable copy.’ Christine Buckley, editor of The Journalist magazine


‘We have worked with Linda for a number of years now and consider her part of The Cat magazine’s editorial family. Whether it’s Linda pitching ideas to us, or us commissioning her – she knows us; what we want and what we need. Her work is always well written, entertaining and informative, with deadlines always observed.’ Francesca Watson, editor of The Cat magazine


‘Linda has a good understanding of our requirements and delivers clean copy on time, usually with supporting case studies.’ Paul Hudson, deputy head of Cars at The Daily Telegraph
