I’m a writer and aspiring children’s author based near Glastonbury, Somerset, in the UK.
A website enhancer by day and book devourer by night, I love ethical companies of all kinds. I have recently completed Bath Spa University’s celebrated MA in Writing for Young People, which I passed with Distinction. I also work full-time for the University as Senior Web and Digital Officer.
This blog is where I go to record my ideas, discoveries and conversations with other people. I’m passionate about reducing my impact on the planet, finding mindful solutions to modern problems and writing.
The short version
The longer version
I’m a bit of a nomad. I’ve lived in a caravan, a yurt and a cabin. Home is a theme that often seeps into my writing. My characters often come from difficult, deprived or disrupted homes, but I like to balance the serious stuff with magic and humour.
A student of Bath Spa University’s MA in Writing for Young People, I also work full-time in digital marketing for the University. I’m passionate about learning, nature, and inspiring small humans to be fearless and kind – especially to themselves.
When I’m not dreaming up sarcastic teens and deadly female antagonists, I can often be found roaming the countryside with my fairy-dog, reading, reviewing plastic-free products and slurping ethical tea and coffee.
Check out the blog. Most of my posts tackle issues such as how feasible it is to go plastic-free. I share nutritious recipes and foodie ideas that make it a little easier to be earth-friendly.
Read my book reviews. Books are talismanic and we need them now perhaps more than ever. I write about magic transgressing the everyday, whether that’s vampires, vengeful gods or heroic children. I’m currently working on a middle-grade fantasy novel set in Whitby.
There’s more to this world than meets the eye, and I believe we can tackle daily problems in more mindful ways. I’m open to the many possibilities presented by this magical, mysterious world. I sometimes work with holistics and creatives on a freelance basis.
