SHARON FEINSTEIN



Born in Zimbabwe, daughter of a prominent local doctor, Sharon left to study English literature at Edinburgh University.
She achieved a first class honours and won the Janet Christie Bequest to study abroad.
Clutching her wad of prize money, she drove to Florence and lived in an old farmhouse for 8 months studying at the British Institute and enjoying Tuscany.
She returned to Scotland and lived in a remote cottage in Argyll for some years writing a novel and walking the hills.
She came to London and started life as a journalist with small speculative pieces for magazines, and then her first major interview for a Sunday Newspaper, with the legendary Cliff Richard, who had visited her home town of Bulawayo playing at the one and only concert hall when she was growing up.
She spent some time in New York, and sailing off Long Island, and then her career in London began in earnest.
She helped to raise money for a premature baby unit at a London Hospital with a well-received 3 part series, interviewed soap stars, travelled with leading rock bands of the time like Freddie Mercury, Spandau Ballet, Rod Stewart, interviewed everyone from lifers to long-haul pilots, venerable British figures like Robin Day and David Dimbleby, and American actors like Angelina Jolie and Leonardo Di Caprio.
