About Annie - Annie Ridout

About Annie


I'm Annie Ridout.

Author of SHY and The Freelance Mum.

Freelance journalist for national news and women's magazines (Guardian, Forbes, Grazia, Red Magazine, Stylist, Metro, Telegraph).

And poet.

Two of my poems have gone viral - 'I've just had a baby' and 'what I want' - so I turned them into prints and books.

I'm also founder of both digital parenting platform The Early Hour and online course business The Robora (helping women to launch and grow their own online businesses).

I live with my husband and our three children in east London, though I spend a lot of time on Rightmove, looking up prohibitively expensive country pads.

(I love an online chat).
