About Me

I live in Lancashire with my husband. I grew up on the Lincolnshire Fens in Eastern England. I have also lived in Wales, Devon, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, and Worcestershire.


I enjoy cycling and cycle-touring (that’s just like cycling but there’s a lot of cake involved.) I am a keen geocacher. I am attempting to improve my photography (after a magazine editor told me that my pictures were rubbish) so you can follow me on Instagram for regular and endless images of our rescue dog, Toby. I have been a historical re-enactor since 2000, and that’s how I met my husband. We do English Civil War re-enactment with The Sealed Knot. Two good punch-ups and a hangover – what better way to spend a weekend?

I like knitting. And eating cake. And reading. And computers. And drawing. And camping. And walking.

I don’t bother with housework. Or following celebrity gossip. Or fashion. Or regular decent haircuts.
