Welcome to my blog – the blank page that I turn to when the words won’t leave my head.
I used to have a parenting blog called Making Mountains but after five years my kids were no longer babies, so I decided to shut that down and keep those early parenting memories private for them. Now I blog less often, but I still wanted a space to share my thoughts on literature, travel, family, food, fashion, relationships, grief, love and anything else.
When not blogging I’m trying to write my first novel, as well as running a content agency called Black Mountain with my business partner Catherine Black. Before this I worked in book publishing in both the UK and SA. I’ve always been obsessed with the elegance, usefulness and power of the written word.
Although this isn’t really a commercial blog, I may occasionally work with selected brands – but I will always make that clear when writing about them. If I don’t note a collaboration, then I’m just mentioning that thing because I like it, and think you might too.
Thanks for visiting, but most importantly, for reading.
