For 15 years, Beverley contributed to the pop cultural narrative of the UK as a music journalist and magazine editor, reviewing gigs and albums, interviewing bands and creating stories that plugged into the zeitgeist – most notably the New Romantics and the electronic music boom of the early Eighties. She chronicled the rise of many popular artists, including Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Soft Cell.
In the Nineties she moved to Fleet Street, working first for The Observer, then The Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Express – writing, editing and commissioning stories for magazine and features sections.

She is an incredibly skilful editor, born out of more than 35 years of writing and journalistic experience. With expert insight and gentle hands she helps people see the story they are telling about themselves. Then she helps them wonder if there is another chapter their soul would like them to start writing. And on top of that she is an inspiring public speaker and has a wonderful sense of humour.”
