I have written many articles sharing my love of travel, nature, creative, self-reliant and alternative ways of living and my words have appeared in a variety of publications, both on-line and in print: National Geographic Traveller, Countryman Magazine, Bird Watching, JUNO, Plants are Magic, Canal Boating Times, Transitions Abroad, Practical Motorhome, Spain Magazine, Rosetta Stone, Living Abroad, Babyworld, Vegetarian Magazine, Permaculture Magazine. My travel column appeared in Mumsense magazine for three years.

In addition to articles my first book Tales from a Travelling Mum is all about the travels I took with my daughter during the first two years of her life and the result is a combination of tales and practical advice for travelling with young children. Right now I am working on a second non-fiction book entitled: Nature Bound.
I also write fiction and several of my short stories have been published in magazines, included in anthologies and one recently won a UK short story competition. I am currently seeking a literary agent for my (almost finished) first novel, Forgiving Summer. It tells the story of one woman's leap from the confines of a conventional life in the UK to the beating heart of a Greek island.
My first children's book Winston the Worried Whale was published in 2015. Illustrated by the wonderful Heidi Rivolta, we were both thrilled with the positive reaction to Winston (please read reviews below) and have since worked on several more educational resources together, including a second Winston project ~ Helping with Worries Conversation Cards.
Another children's project close to my heart is a series of books I am writing for vegan children, illustrated by my dear friend, Joana Soares. As a vegan parent myself, my hope is that the character Celandine will enable other parents to start the conversation about the reasons for their chosen lifestyle.
I am passionate about using poetry as a way to spread meaningful messages... Some of my vegan-inspired poems have appeared in Vegan Life Magazine and you can hear me reading my poem, 'It Started with an Ant' on the VIVA! August 2017 podcast. A little Autumnal poem I wrote was recently named #poemoftheday by the lovely Countryman Magazine.
