Portrait shot of My Weekly fiction editor Susan WatsonWe’re well and truly on our countdown to Christmas Day now, and my two little girls can’t wait to get stuck into their chocolate advent calendars – the only time of the year when chocolate at breakfast time is allowed! Of course, advent calendars aren’t just for kids – I love all the gorgeous beauty advent calendars featured on page 14. Last year my mum got me the Boots No.7 one and I just loved opening the doors each day to discover a new little beauty treat – everything from moisturiser to a nail polish! I hope you enjoy this latest issue and 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!
