Bio

A born- and- bred Londoner, Cynthia Lawrence is a freelance journalist and editor. She began her media journey as a production assistant at the news hub of MTV Networks Europe before making the transition to music journalism. She eventually broke into the world of feature writing and editing for women's lifestyle magazines. She now spends her time writing for Huffington Post, Bella, Chat UK magazines amongst others, and currently sub-edits for The Sun Online, Britain’s best-selling newspaper.   Bizarre career moments have been plentiful, but nothing beats the night Mariah Carey attempted to get her drunk during an interview, an impromptu serenade by Terrence Howard, and important marriage advice from Toni Braxton (“trim those hedges!”).  She lives in Kent, England with her long-suffering hubby, and their Marvel superheroes obsessed 4-year-old son.
