Eleanor has spent the last 25 years as an Editor at The Sunday Times where she started as the paper’s main interviewer. Over the years she’s interrogated everyone from Mikhail Gorbachev to the Dalai Lama, Sheryl Sandberg to Theresa May and Dawn French

Currently, Eleanor Mills is launching a campaign, supported by Carolyn Harris, MP and a Parliamentary Petition to incorporate menopause into the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) for GPs.

She also runs NOON, an organisation for women over fifty, which amongst many other things, offers subscribers a paperback book a month, followed by a ‘meet the author’ online event. The genres range from literary fiction to thrillers to non-fiction. This is why I joined Noon. I enjoy the monthly surprise!

What astonishes me is that I’ve never heard of this lady. She’s clearly phenomenally successful, and yet I didn’t know her. How is that possible? Is there a secret agenda in the mainstream press that only the whacky or the extreme get noticed? As a debut author, I poke around on the internet more than I used to for research purposes. It leads me to interesting places. But I do question why someone like Eleanor isn’t more visible.  If you want answers to that question, Eleanor Mills at Noon has a plausible theory.

In the meantime, I recognise that my story of Daisy Chain is about just this issue – the forgotten women in history, who were never well known in their day. We need to raise them up!
