A very warm welcome to my website!
I'm a self-employed writer, editor and workshop facilitator based in East Sussex, UK. I write about my passion for wellness, gentle parenting, sustainable travel, environmental issues and soulful living, as well as poetry, personal essays and creative nonfiction.
I contribute regularly to The Green Parent magazine and my work has also featured in Rebelle Society, Scribe, Elephant Journal, the Brighton Argus, Permaculture Magazine, Medium and the Viva group.
I am currently working on my first collection of poetry, a children's book and a non-fiction book about the adventures of a bus called Bella.
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. So far it's been an adventure, and is my way of traveling without moving. Thank you for joining me! 💙
