Words wrought to life with I-magic and I-magination.
Solitary delight in crafting poetry and prose. Of fantasy anchored in the Ordinary World. Magic and ghosts tantalisingly close if we but see. Trees have doors, meadows hold secrets and spirits go a walking where least expected.

I now write full-time from a tiny writing studio at the bottom of an ancient castle. I'm also a member of Litopia, the online writing community.
The sometimes indefinable side, which happen to be the things I love:
writing (of course!), discussions with like-minded friends, unusual & archaic words, stories (especially ghosts, legends, folk horror, fantasy), natural magic, garden spells, trees, healing, journeying, seeking, MotherPeace tarot reading, cooking, strength training, Feldenkrais, animal flow, walking Dartmoor & coast with husband Andy, and vizsla Francesca, collecting shells, stones, wood & bones . . .
