From the earliest age, I understood words to be sacred tools. It is, indeed, a blessing that I’ve been able to use this gift as both an author and a celebrant.
I’ve officiated all manner of ceremonies since 1995. In fact, my daughter Bethany was just a couple of months old in my belly when I officiated my first wedding ceremony that sunny day in New Zealand. It has been my pleasure to officiate ceremonies internationally, and now I offer celebrant training here in Cumbria. I love teaching others the wonderful vocation of celebrancy!
My novels explore sacred space and moments, and the beauty and bruises of relationships. They are deliberately rooted in the power of family, and the characters are often on a journey of discovering their life purpose by encountering the shimmer of their soul.
My favourite things: (in no particular order!)
Long, hot showers
Singing in my car
Spending time with my loved ones
Flowers: especially freesias, sunflowers, starflowers, jasmine and lilac
The rhythm of words
Laughing till my belly hurts
My hands in the soil and the sunshine on my shoulders
