I studied Archaeology and Anthropology at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge before training as a TEFL teacher. I spent the summer on the Costa Brava as a child, so it was a natural step to move Barcelona - where I've been living ever since. I have worked as a teacher at the British Council, Barcelona and, after completing my RSA/UCLES DELTA diploma, I started work as the Director of Languages at Merit.
I began writing materials for Macmillan in 1996 - Brilliant, Imagine, Definitions, United. I first worked with Dave Spencer on the Macmillan Secondary Course and was thrilled to be asked to write the Gateway Teacher's books for A2, B1, B1+ and B2 levels. I'm currently adapting these Teacher's books for the Middle East. I hope you enjoy using the series as much as I have enjoyed working on it!
