Susie Boniface has been a journalist on national and local newspapers, broadsheet and tabloid, dailies and Sundays, since leaving school.
She started work at the Kent & Sussex Courier aged 18 and was the first female defence reporter for the Plymouth Evening Herald. She has worked almost everywhere in Fleet Street, and spent 10 years at the Sunday Mirror where she interviewed the toilet attendant punched by Cheryl Tweedy, exposed George Osborne's cocaine shame with a dominatrix, and covered international crises including the Boxing Day tsunami and Niger famine.
In 2009 she began blogging anonymously as Fleet Street Fox and published a novel, The Diaries of a Fleet Street Fox, after revealing her identity in the Times. Today she is a freelance columnist, TV and radio commentator, as well as a media consultant and visiting lecturer in journalism at City, University of London.
She is also a judge for the Kent Press & Broadcast Awards.
