My Weekly Latest Issue October 24


Portrait shot of My Weekly fiction editor Susan WatsonI love Hallowe’en – so much so that I’ve booked a half day off work just so I can transform our house into a spooky wonderland and leave plenty of time to get everything ready, so that the girls can get into their costumes and dook for apples before we go out guising. We’re having a few of their friends to visit on the night, so I’m planning to give some of the Terrifying Treats on page 18 a go. The pumpkin cake is a fabulous centrepiece! If dressing up isn’t your style, we also have some great spooky book suggestions on page 22 – read if you dare! Have a great week.

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