A Southerner displaced in the Midlands, I am a reader, writer, runner, knitter and mother. I like coffee and cake, conkers, and Christmas. I work full time in internal communications and spend a lot of time making lists.
As a writer, I am one of ‘Twenty-four Stories’ for Grenfell and a shortlistee for the Blue Pencil First Novel award 2018. I write short stories and flash fiction, creative non-fiction, and novels that are yet to be published. However, I firmly believe that there is value to writing for yourself, in crafting and making something out of the jumble of thoughts, and as a Wellbeing Champion I provide advice and guidance on ways that writing can help your wellbeing.
I run reading and writing workshops for wellbeing online, and am an advocate for bibliotherapy and things bookish.
