She has written for Little Toller’s The Clearing and she contributed to the acclaimed anthology Women in Nature, edited by Katharine Norbury.
Her most recent narrative non-fiction was published in Moving Mountains, described as a ‘first-of-its-kind’ anthology of nature writing by disabled and chronically ill writers.
She is currently writing a memoir on nature, place and chronic illness. She has found it a creatively exciting and personally challenging journey, and it has taught her a great deal, mostly about herself.
Novelist E.M. Forster wrote “Only connect!… only connect the prose and the passion… Live in fragments no longer.”
Nature thrives on connections, networks, healthy ecosystems, symbiotic relationships – and so do we. We are as much a part of the natural world as a bracket fungus, a dandelion or a red kite.
I’m passionate about finding simple, meaningful ways to engage with nature in our busy lives and communicating them through prose. My newsletters will explore ways we can reconnect the fragments of human experience and the natural world, through noticing, understanding and caring for the landscapes, ecosystems and living beings (human & non-human) that surround us.
