I’ve been writing in a freelance and staff capacity for charities, community groups, local and national newspapers and other organisations and publications since 2006. My writing covers nature, landscape, wildlife and local history.
In 2006 I wrote 200-word match previews for The Observer newspaper on my beloved(!) Everton Football Club.
Around 2008 I wrote album and live music reviews, and interviewed artists, all recorded on a now archived blog The Daughters of Quiet Minds.
In 2014 I published my first poetry booklet, I am living with the animals, followed by Sumptuous beasts in 2018.
In 2022 I’ll be published in print for the first time with the launch of London Wildlife Trust’s London in the Wild, for which I’ve contributed to the chapter on woodlands.
The best way to keep up with my writing is to follow my blog.

Really like this piece! Nice rhythm to it and love the way it shines a light on the way people connect to wildlife in different ways.
