Shonette LaffyShonette Laffy - Deputy Editor

She has worked in publishing for almost ten years, having fled the buzz of her home town London for the quirky and (relative) tranquillity of the West Country. She spends her time outside work indulging in questionable cooking experiments (seven cheese mac 'n' cheese anyone?) and exploring the best bars & restaurants in Bristol to blog about.
