RECENT WRITING AND EDITING...

I have worked for a wide range of regional newspapers, national and international magazines, contract publishers, online sites, and 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, science report writing.

Lots of wildlife-friendly planting ideas are attached, to make your back yard into nature's paradise. Eco gardens can look stunning and make a blissful spot to enjoy lots of wild visitors. Feature published in Bristol Voice newspaper. Download here: page 1 and page 2
