About Me


Welcome to my blog. Some of you may already know me from my Twitter account – @The_Lady_Sybil

For those of you who are here for the first time, my name is Charlie and I am a forty-something academic admin type who moonlights in freelance writing, blogging and social media.

My work is published on several websites and occasionally in print, I love to write about subjects from food and drink, to health and fitness, feminism and sex, and even the odd technical foray as I’m a big geek at heart.

As you may have guessed from the title of this blog, my specialist subject is alcohol, specifically gin. I’ve judged cocktail competitions, reviewed products, and often can be found running a gin tasting or two.

As well as writing my own blog, I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to contribute to the following sites:

I’ve also been lucky enough to be involved in a few television programmes such as Right on the Money (BBC One), Ruth Watson’s Hotel Rescue (Channel 4), Alex Polizi – The Fixer (BBC Two), BBC Breakfast, and on a number of programmes on That’s Manchester. 

If you’d like to contact me, work with me, or have me work for you, all you need to do is drop me an email – and I’ll be in touch.
