Letitia Rowlands

Letitia is a Sydney-based journalist who combines writing with bringing up sons Hugo, 4, and Jasper, 8 months. She has 20 years experience in the mainstream media and has covered everything from general news, to police rounds and courts.

Most recently she was The Daily Telegraph’s Family Reporter where she wrote news and opinion pieces on issues facing all types of modern-day families. Earlier this year Letitia decided to try life as a freelance journalist in a bid to spend more time with her young sons. The demands of being a work-from-home mum mean she occasionally spends the entire day in her pyjamas.

From: Hasbro, go straight to gaol, do not pass go

Tim says:
