I have had feature articles published in magazines and newspapers including The Guardian, The Guardian Weekly, Woman Alive, The National and BBC Countryfile Magazine.
The Guardian: Why I challenged my sons to a week of computer games.
I have always written poetry and only recently decided to get some published.
Northwords Now: Driving Lesson
In my role as Writer in Residence for the Cairngorms National Park I am writing a weekly blog about my own and other people’s encounters with the natural environment: Writing the Way.
While travelling around the world with my husband and sons for seven months in 2011/2012, I wrote a blog Around the World in Eighty Wickets. It’s all about family life on the road through India, Nepal, Australia and South Africa… with a cricket bat.
In 2000, after several years of work in Nepal, I co-wrote the script for a documentary, Sunshine in the Shadows, about development work in a remote region.
Reminiscence & Life-Story
I have been involved in a number of projects drawing out the memories and life-stories of others and then crafting these into a finished piece for the teller to share with family and friends. In 1996 I compiled and edited a collection of these stories from elderly people in central Scotland into the anthology I Remember Sunny Days.
I have written reviews of fiction for Northwords Now and am always interested to do more.
I lead retreat days in the ancient practice of keeping a diary of the spiritual life.
