Most difficult story you've found for a commissioning editor: Tasked to find either the last baby born in a small town set for demolition, or a woman due to imminently give birth in the town, in time for a newspaper report on the possibility of a new runway at Heathrow. I went very literally door to door until I found her.

Feature you are most proud of: There are too many to chose from. Some of my highlights include a beautiful story of motherhood that I found for Take a Break and was later turned into a bestselling book for Penguin. I have also ghostwritten a number of non-fiction bestsellers for Penguin. Those were a labour of love.
