Since seeing a book in her mum’s study as a child called Words Were Originally Magic Phoebe has been obsessed with writing. She studied Journalism and Cultural Studies in university, winning department prize for Best Dissertation and gaining a first class honours degree, followed by an MA in English that she received with Distinction. Later she completed her NCTJ qualification in Journalism while working on a newspaper in Wales and made headlines on Hold the Front Page  when she passed her 100wpm shorthand test after starting learning it from scratch in just six months.

As editor she regularly writes features for Wanderlust Travel Magazine – from first person narratives to advice pages, round-ups and is also the resident ‘Gear Guru’ – she also frequently appears in magazines and newspapers in the UK and overseas including The Guardian, Telegraph, Financial Times  and Metro.
