Stapleford, United Kingdom

I have been creative all my life, and wouldn’t want it any other way…except possibly a wee bit tidier!

My ‘first love’ is my writing, which covers many genres, but is primarily fantastical, as I get to let my crazy imagination loose whilst I do this. I write long and short pieces of fantasy, the shortest being those I seem to be continually scribbling for the Twisted Tales Star twister competitions. Currently on the go I have three long, potential novels, fantasy works of an adventure or Romantic theme, several short stories as developed for competitions again with a fantastical or romantic often adventurous theme.

My photography tends to focus on plants, landscapes and buildings on the basis that they remain stationary- I haven’t yet mastered movement techniques on my camera though I would love to do more animal and sport photography. There are, of course, a few exceptions as you will no doubt discover… particularly now I have two muses in the form of my rabbits Smudge and Bart.

Please address any critique to my bubble mail- any is welcome.

My images are available in a range of items – please do have a browse through my shop (not all images are available in all formats)… some of my particular favorites are:

Spring Clean

It has been an age since I have properly focused on Redbubble, and I feel it is time I took things in hand again. I want to control, manage and plan my account – review what I offer and hopefully develop my creativity (and ideally sales!) again. / To do this I will reduce my group management, my group membership and severely reduce my portfolio. This will take some time, but hopefully this …

Book Review

I recently visited a local Derbyshire tradition – the Well Dressing. The Dance group I belong to has regularly been involved demonstrating for West Hallam, and this year was no exception. Amongst the stalls raising funds for charities by selling bird boxes/ scented bits an craft stalls was a local authress selling her first novel. / Although passing at a run, I had to stop and I was sold on…
