About Me

Hello, and welcome to my website! I am an author,  blogger, YouTuber, singer, and budding photographer/filmmaker. I live in a little village in Suffolk, UK, on the coast of the North Sea. I was born in Canada, but moved to the UK over twenty-five years ago.  The heathland, forest and shingle beaches where I live are so beautiful, and sing to my soul. Every day I am learning to deepen my connection to this land, and be inspired by its beauty, its challenges and its soulsong.
