Thank you so much for stopping by! I write fiction and non-fiction and am a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors.


I have one novel due to be published and another in first draft stage. I also have a couple of other novel ideas simmering away underneath. There’s also a draft of a craft book that needs polishing up and sending off and a vegetarian and vegan recipe book brewing.


I regularly write book reviews and articles on various topics about the crafting community, sustainable living and eating seasonably for UK Handmade, an online design magazine and website.


If I'm not weeding, writing or growing vegetables, I do freelance writing and web design as well as being a consultant on document creation and production.


When I get the chance I like to run the odd craft workshop, teaching people how to knit and crochet. And sometimes I design patterns.


You can find free craft tutorials and other stuff on my website at Once you're there why not take the eeeeeasy option and sign up to the mailing list or subscribe to my RSS feed on my site. That way you don't miss out on any of the crafty goodness but you don't have to keep checking back. Sweet.


Want in? Then pop along to and get in on the action!
