Spider love!

RECENT WRITING AND EDITING...

I am excited to say my first children's nature book is due out later in 2019, with international publisher Quarto. In between working outside as a field ecologist, I work as a freelance writer, with 20 years experience as a writer, sub-editor, production editor and operations/managing editor.
I have worked for a wide range of regional newspapers, national and international magazines, contract publishers, websites, for authors and clients in the private and conservation sectors. I also write and deliver science communication outreach projects and short courses. 
Subject experience: science, wildlife, environment, botany, gardening, current affairs, crime, local government, human interest, music, computing, digital arts, videogames, property, travel, ecological consultancy reports.

I explore light pollution and its impacts on bats, following new research, in my article for BBC Wildlife Magazine. Available at: BBC Wildlife Mag
