I am passionate about exploring life and penning authentic words about what I discover: places, people, feelings, experiences - writing is my way of trying to make sense of the world and I am never without notepad and pen.
I love to submerse myself in nature: wild beaches, breathtaking mountains, rugged forest, soft hills... sea, river, wind, rain; barefoot (and a bare soul), whenever possible.
I thrive on the open road: the change of scenery, injection of new inspirations, the thrill of new and undiscovered paths.
My hands are never happier than when creating: woodworking, sewing, knitting. My body never brighter than when nourished: healthful food, meditation, yoga. My heart never more at ease than when true: compassionate, open, raw.
Every day I strive to weave these elements of myself into the way I live... endlessly exploring and questioning, always seeking out time in nature to think; to breathe. I have lived in Japan, Spain, France, Portugal, Greece and travelled the world writing for a travel guide. I have wandered from cabin to cottage; narrowboat to campervan, always in search of ways to live simply and authentically. This little corner of the web is where I share my findings: through articles, poetry, short stories, books and blog posts. You can expect to read about travel, nature, home-education, vegan living, gardening, handcrafting, living off-grid, as well as other musings that slip in!
Along with my husband, 11-year-old daughter and two dogs, I currently live between a North Yorkshire bolthole by the sea, a tucked away caravan on a farm in the South of England, and the open road.
