I am a writer, editor and environmentalist based in Wellington, Somerset. I am half English, half Bengali and spent 20 years in Delhi working in publishing before returning to the UK in 2015 with my son. Recent publications include: 'Gifts of Gravity and Light: A Nature Almanac for the 21st Century' co-edited with Pippa Marland (Hodder), 'A Year in Kingcombe: The Wildflower Meadows of Dorset' (Wilding Press); and children's books - 'Gravepyres School for the Recently Deceased' (Westland) and 'The Power of Ten' (Pratham Books). I am an organiser and volunteer with my fantastic local Transition Town group in Wellington, working mostly - at the moment - on establishing a new community forest garden, and a green corridor project in our town. I also work part time as a cloud-maker - yes, really - for a natural acoustic sound cloud manufacturer, The Woolly Shepherd.
