Hello. I'm Catherine Larner, a freelance journalist, writer, editor and presenter living in Suffolk.

I spent 12 years reporting on the leisure industry, eight of these as editor of Health Club Management. I have acted as the contributing editor to Club Business Europe and Club Business International magazines, based in the USA. My articles have also been published in business titles such as European Business, FitPro Business, Spa Business, Leisure Management, and I have undertaken contracts to produce various in-house magazines and newsletters, including Chelsea’s Harbour Club magazine.
For more than 10 years I co-hosted a monthly book club for the afternoon programme on BBC Radio Suffolk and was regularly asked to appear as a commentator on the morning programme.
As an on stage interviewer at events and festivals, I've been pleased to host many personalities and leading names in literature, including Alexander McCall Smith, Robert Peston, Kate Humble, Margaret Drabble, Victoria Hislop, Deborah Moggach, Libby Purves, Michael Morpurgo and Alan Johnson MP.
