I write magazine features and articles for a wide variety of publications including Period House, BBC Who Do You Think You Are? and Discover My Past. I specialise in writing about history and heritage, homes and interiors, education, the environment and children’s reference.
"Michelle researched and wrote our 150th anniversary publication in collaboration with our editorial team. Her work was of a high standard, on time and to budget, and I would be happy to recommend her research, writing and editorial skills to anyone."

I also undertake copywriting for small businesses and individuals. I write mailers, press releases, brochures and websites for projects large and small. I pride myself on being able to tailor my writing to specific audiences, on time and within budget.

Social history books
As the author of six non-fiction social history books, I am passionate about history in all its forms, including family history and local history. My books include Christmas Cards, Life in the Victorian and Edwardian Workhouse, Prison Life in Victorian England, Life in the Victorian Hospital, Tracing Your Medical Ancestors and Tracing Your Servant Ancestors.
“Daily life…is recounted in this book with both historical detail and sympathy, aided in both aspects by numerous first-person accounts and many specific details from workhouses around the country.”
