Features and Articles
"Michelle has written for Limited Edition for three years. Copy always comes in on time, together with relevant photographs, and we get exactly what has been agreed. One part of the magazine I never have to worry about!"
Carol Hinett, Editor, Limited Edition
I specialise in writing features and articles about history and heritage, homes and interiors, education, the environment and children’s reference. In 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:
|Ancestors||Antiques & Collectables||Aquila|
|BBC History||Best of British||Discover My Past|
|Family Active||Family History Monthly||Family Tree|
|HomeStyle||The Lady||Limited Edition|
|Move to the Country||My Weekly||New England Antiques Journal|
|Period House||Rooms & Living||Take A Break|
|The Times Educational Supplement||Who Do You Think You Are?||Writing Magazine|
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.

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.
