Rhiane Kirkby

Rhiane is a mum of two, living in Chiswick. Originally from Lancashire she moved to London 15 years ago and hasn’t looked back. A TV editor by trade, she’s left the lights, cameras and action behind for now and is fulfilling her other passion—writing. Rhiane contributes to a number of baby and parenting titles in London and beyond and can often be found chasing her energetic toddler around parks and play areas whilst, at the same time, trying to keep her ever-so-slightly demanding baby entertained!
