Leigh Bramwell


Who is Leigh Bramwell?

Leigh Bramwell has been a journalist ‘forever,’ starting her career as a cadet reporter on the Otago Daily Times in the seventies and concluding it (she hopes) with a stint as editor of the New Zealand Herald magazine ‘My Generation’.

In between she’s worked on numerous magazines, produced and directed regional news for Television New Zealand, run her own PR company, written a couple of books, and published the glossy garden design magazine Alfresco.

She has always made her own rules, taking advantage of technology (“and a good car”) to work from remote parts of the country, most recently Kerikeri, where she still owns a boutique lime orchard to which she says she may retire one day.

In the meantime, she works from Waiheke Island, where she shares a home with her landscaper partner and a collection of rescued rejects from the SPCA.
