Who am I?
Website fancier by day, recipe tester by night. In love with ethical companies of all kinds.
I’m a writer and aspiring author based near Frome, Somerset, in the UK.
Plastic Free Spirit is my online home
It’s where I go to record my ideas, discoveries, and conversations with other people. I’m passionate about reducing my impact on the planet, magical solutions to modern problems, and writing – especially gorgeous copy and glittering fiction for young people.
I’m currently a student on Bath Spa University’s celebrated MA Writing for Young People. I also work full-time for the University as a Copywriter and Web Content Coordinator (learn more). It’s truly thrilling to watch my writing go from strength to strength as I progress on the course!
Check out the blog. Most of my posts tackle issues such as how feasible it is to go plastic-free. I share nutritious recipes and foodie ideas that make it a little easier to be eco-friendly. I also write about our successes and failures, so that you can start with what works and build on your strengths.
Read my thoughts on writing (and access some of my stories!). Books are talismanic, and young people need them – perhaps more than ever. I write about magic transgressing the everyday, whether that’s vampires and vengeful gods, or the loyalty and compassion that exists between friends.
I should tell you from the beginning that I believe in magic. I take the approach that there’s more to the world that meets the eye, and while I’m often sceptical (I’ve lived in Glastonbury, after all!), I’m open to possibilities. I often work with holistic practitioners on a freelance basis.
