I am a writer from Hampshire specialising in wildlife, landscape and ethical living. Having grown up in the chalky hills of the South Downs, I later spent five years between Bristol and London where I completed my undergraduate degree in English Literature and a Masters in English at UCL, my second best achievements after winning third prize at the Singleton Rare Breeds Show with my goat Sorrel.
I have now returned to east Hampshire, where I take most of my inspiration from the surrounding landscape and also work on an educational farm. I write a monthly wildlife column for Hampshire Life magazine, and have also written for the Guardian, Woodland Trust, Huffington Post and Countryfile among others. In 2016 I had a piece printed in the Winter anthology published by Elliot & Thompson/The Wildlife Trusts and edited by Melissa Harrison.
Last year I signed a contract with Bloomsbury for my first book about foraging and the countryside. I am currently available for freelance writing and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org, or find me on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
My first book Food You Can Forage will be published by Bloomsbury on 8th March 2018.
