A very warm welcome to my website!
I'm a self-employed writer, editor and workshop facilitator based in East Sussex, UK. I write on wellness, gentle parenting, sustainable travel, environmental issues and soulful living, as well as poetry, personal essays and creative nonfiction. I'm the author of the poetry collection The Honey in the Bones, published by Golden Dragonfly Press in December 2022.
I contribute regularly to The Green Parent magazine and my work has also featured in Rebelle Society, Braided Way, Elephant Journal, Scary Mommy, the Brighton Argus, Permaculture Magazine, Medium and the Viva group.
Following the publication of my first collection of poetry, I am working on a second collection, as well as a non-fiction book which explores themes of intergenerational healing and our relationship to the land.
I live close to the sea and the green hills of the South Downs with my husband and two young children. Alongside freelance writing I’m a proud stay-at-home mum, qualified holistic therapist, volunteer forest school assistant and founder member of Wellbeing at Brighton Earthship, where I coordinate and facilitate holistic events, retreats and workshops.
"The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses
to grow sharper." - W. B. Yeats
I graduated from the University of Sussex in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature.
Following this I spent most of my twenties traveling the world and practising as a Holistic Therapist, training in Shiatsu and Ayurvedic bodywork as well as massage, reflexology and aromatherapy.
After I had children, I decided to follow my dreams of being a writer. Thank you for joining me on this adventure! 💙
