I’m a word geek. I love playing around with words; experimenting with new ones, savouring favourites, trying different permutations and combinations in sentences. Words are important. We make history, word by word. I also love the outdoors. Living in a log cabin in the woods (which is also a stone’s throw from the water!) is an endless source of inspiration for me. I write about many things, but nature-inspired topics are my favourites.
