About Me

The world at my fingertips and my head in the clouds…


I am a rock climber of 10+ years, and nothing gets me going quite like chalky hands and sticky rockboots. Having also worked within the industry, I am continuously building my climbing technique and ability, keen to discover more of myself and the world. I’m always up for adventure, liking little more than windswept hair and ruddy cheeks – stick me atop a mountain, and I’m free, wholly myself, wanting for nothing. In June 2013 I hiked 5000m of Mount Kilimanjaro in support of the Practical Action charity – despite being sent back down with altitude sickness shortly before the summit, it reminded me of my love of the wild. I have plans to some day hit Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn, and I’m desperate to get more continental rock under my belt. With fingers firmly crossed to one day hit a career that can see me travel more freely, I use this blog as a way to express myself, my experiences, and boost my impact in the blogging and writing world.

Alongside this I am growing as a freelance editor, taking on paid articles as well as pro bono private clients. I’m open minded and keen to develop skills in a range of genres, having delved already into fantasy, non-fiction, sci-fi, and adventure. Do get in touch if you’d like me to read, review, or comment on anything, be it book or production.

  1. Like your about me, and it sounds like if you want to really get through your writers block you need to get your hands chalky and your sticky rockboots on. Or even better sit down to the computer and just put down that feeling into words when your half way up a cliff hanging by a rope dangling in the air high above the ground. What does that feel like? Why is that something that really gets your head rolling in excitement or whatever the emotion is? Tell me all about it… Someone who is afraid of heights, snakes, well reptiles in general and convinced if I go out climbing rocks something will be in one of those crevices. So what is it about Rock Climbing that gets you jazzed up? Explain it to me? Because that is something you are passionate about, and I think there will be some words that flow all about that. You can even write it as a letter if that would help you.

    1. Thank you so much for your comments. Trying to vocalise my passion for climbing is very difficult, but I hope my recent post (Head for Heights) can give you some idea of why I do what I do. Enjoy!

  2. I have just been sent a copy of your review of Debs Newbold’s “Under Her Skin” at the Electric Theatre last year. I’ve got her coming to the Electric next Thursday (24th) to tell ghost stories. Would you like a couple of comp tickets? Cheers Lawrence

    1. Thank you very much for the offer – I would have loved to have come, but unfortunately am unavailable. Please do get in touch again should she return once more to Guildford. Thank you for your interest.
