About

Welcome.

I’m a writer, editor, author and ‘plain English’ consultant. This blog is my own writing space (it started off as a way to record family fun with nature and the outdoors and has evolved from there). I’ve just finished a Masters degree in Anthrozoology – the study of how humans interact with other animals – so those themes remain.

I have worked for BBC Wildlife Magazine, written natural history tv scripts, co-authored several natural history books and written one of my own Chimpanzees, BBC (2000). In 2014, I had a wonderful month-long adventure sailing around the Canadian Arctic (Baffin Island), having been hired to write a diary on board a wildlife-watching ship chartered by Mark Carwardine.

I also offer corporate writing services, including plain English business writing. See my professional blog for more.

Looking for Dragons – the title
I wanted the blog title to capture the spirit and magic of interacting with nature. It comes from the poem ‘Us Two’, by AA Milne, which has the line ‘Let’s look for dragons’.
