about the author

Clare Dwyer Hogg

Officially 9-5 I am a journalist. This means: I work as an editor for The Independent Saturday Magazine; broadcast once a fortnight on BBC London's The Robert Elms Show (the main reason for this blog, to keep the listeners up to date!) and have presented my investigative journalism on BBC Radio 5 live Donal MacIntyre show. I also write freelance for a variety of publications, and have written a foreword for this book. I hold one award for human rights journalism, given to me in Italy. 

Outside of being a journalist most importantly, above all things, I am a mother, and I seem to write plays now, too. I'm part of the Abbey Theatre's New Playwrights Programme and have a few things up my sleeve.

Every minute of the day: winding my way through, taking in the surroundings, gathering from coincidence.
