I write about the things that matter to me: the natural world, extraordinary everyday places, finding the voices of unremembered lives. I’m really interested in chronicles of recovery and restoration; the process of poetic archaeology which puts things back in their rightful place. And I’m passionate about form and its creative potential – sometimes our structures are the things we need to set us free.
With my marketing background, I'm always really interested to know what people think of my work - so do please get in touch with your feedback, or write a review on Amazon or Goodreads if you have time.
