Thanks very much for the spread on Saturday: a lovely piece.
My mother said in some 60 years of media stories about them or me she had never read something so accurate factually!

Kirstie is a great journalist to work with. She provides a useful sounding board for ideas and can often help shape your story, as well as having a wealth of her own. She seems to have an enviable ability to successfully spin a variety of plates at the same time from lifestyle to property. I consider her a vital contact.

As an editor Kirstie strikes the perfect balance between managing her writers and letting them have a degree of editorial control. She has excellent people skills and knows just how to bring out the best in others. Always friendly and engaging, she is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Hannah Smith, freelance editor and writer, managed Kirstie at PSP Rare Publishing
I employed Kirstie as assistant editor on Somerfield magazine in March 2008. Right from the start she showed a sound understanding of the magazine and quickly established a strong relationship with the client. Her news reporting experience and nose for a good story meant she contributed greatly to the lifestyle element of the Somerfield magazine, sourcing and writing topical and very moving ‘real life’ human interest stories. Organised and meticulous, Kirstie was a joy to work with. I can thoroughly recommend her.

Andrew Duncan, Editor at Living France, managed Kirstie at PSP Rare Publishing
Kirstie is a joy to work with. She is bright, talented and organised. In a very challenging, frenetically paced work environment, Kirstie could always be relied upon to produce excellent copy to very tight deadlines, and her meticulous forward planning meant that her articles were always on time and to brief. Among her many achievements at Somerfield magazine was the way she revamped the Real Life feature – using her journalistic flair and excellent interviewing and writing skills to bring very touching and moving stories vividly to life.
