Essentially my about page only needs those two words because that is exactly what I do: I write.
The content I choose to write and how I go about it has evolved over the course of two decades. I started out doing freelance journalism and feature writing, then added some copywriting and corporate clients to the mix, and finally went skinny-dipping in the pool of fiction, memoir and poetry.
I have always been surrounded and involved with books and the publishing industry. Right now I work part-time at a second-hand bookshop and have taken on a number of creative projects. These include a couple of books and an MA in Creative Writing.
I absolutely love what I do. It isn’t only the process of putting words on the page that thrills me. I enjoy the collection of ideas by reading prolifically and I play around with images too. Then I brainstorm new ideas by collaging all that I have researched and discovered, and pull those thoughts together in the form of poetry, short stories, articles, essays, and sometimes – when I am lucky – books.
My blog is essentially a collection of my collecting. I talk about books and ideas. I chat about the writing life. I also remain raw and personal, so you will find plenty posts about mental health, creativity and rather honest pockets of thought.
My work has been published widely and if you’re interested in this you can download the media pack containing my portfolio here: (coming soon, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org)
