My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneBecoming My Weekly editor has been a career highpoint for me – the culmination of almost 20 years’ experience as a journalist. The day I got the job I went home, and my son, 13 at the time, looked gravely at me and said, “Well done Dad, you’ve finally done something we’re proud of.” Talk about a backhanded compliment! I know what he meant, but still, I had to think about it. Luckily, other dads have received more fulsome praise and wisdom from their children, and for Father’s Day we have gathered some of the cutest comments! (see p40) Have a great week.

Summer Mood Fiction

This week’s fiction is a particularly delightful seasonal bouquet with whiffs of Italian lemons, old English roses, sea air and a bridal posy… no, wait, there are two weddings, but in which story is the other one? You’ll have a wonderfully escapist hour or two finding out!

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly is a fantastic, warm-hearted brand with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on fiction and the advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that weekly reminder!
