I specialise in writing features and articles about history and heritage, homes and interiors, education, the environment and children’s referenceIn the course of my freelance writing, I have written about a huge variety of subjects – everything from criminal ancestors, Scouting and baby’s bathtime through to choosing carpets, going green and Victorian Christmas cards.  These are some of the publications I have written for:

History and heritage features

My very first freelance features were about history and heritage, celebrating Britain's rich and colourful past.  These features are often linked with my social history books, family history, historical anniversaries or historic places to visit.

Homes and interiors features

I have written homes and interiors features since 1996 for a wide range of publications.  The types of features vary from buyer’s guides, creating a specific look, general round-ups and readers’ homes.

Environmental features

My interest in the environment has grown since I started working as a field teacher at the Dudley Environment Zone.  While the environment is currently a topical subject, I believe it will continue to be so in years to come.  For two years, I wrote a green column for Period House which encouraged readers to go green at home.
