First creative writing was published when 12 years old. Professionally written for 30 years (albeit formulaic) as a newspaper journalist, feature writer, copy writer for websites, marketing, press releases and social media. Past eight years I have written bespoke scripts for funeral services I conduct as a celebrant. Inspired by the extraordinary in ordinary life stories. Have self published family history book I researched, wrote, illustrated and designed as a gift for my father on a milestone birthday. Currently got an unfinished guide book project and the unsown seed of a fiction book which I intend to complete within the next two years. Believe journalling can be an effective tool to better understand and work through grief or worries.
