The woman who loves words...

About

I am a word nerd.  I love words and like to pin them onto paper (or screen).  I write fiction, plays, articles and enjoy blogging.  A lot of my writing is inspired by nature - walking, being in nature, and the changes of the seasons.  Although I live in Greater Manchester, I am constantly dazzled by pockets of wildlife in the most urban places.  I worry a lot about climate change and write poetry that explores this.

If you're quick, you might spot me in Manchester either on a microphone or possibly hosting an event...
