My career began over ten years ago on a newspaper journalism internship in Ghana, West Africa.

Lorna North
 

This start in life enabled me to become a twice published author of two editions of The Rough Guide to South East Asia, and a contributor in The Rough Guide to Camping in Britain. I spent several years in the corporate world working in content marketing before setting up my own copywriting business in 2015.
 

Founder of Queen of the Mile
 

 I set up Queen of the Mile, a cycling and running blog, in 2014 with the aim to get more more people to go on adventures and push their limits through adventure and challenge. I document the highs and lows of my many endurance escapades from cycling 220 miles in a day to running up Ben Nevis. I also talk about my failed challenges and how I've learned from them – a lot of the lessons I learn on my adventures are applied to my freelance writing business. 

The blog has picked up some great traction. In 2016 I collaborated on a campaign with Go Pro to create a series of short films documenting a journey to cycle a challenging route across the UK. It's amazing that a project that remains as a hobby has given me some wonderful opportunities to work with big brands and travel the world to create content that inspires people to get active.
