(United Kingdom)

I’m an archaeologist who lives between Cardiff, Wiltshire, and a small hamlet in Hertfordshire. I’m bookish and quiet but tell a good story. My work features in a wide range of anthologies, journals and competitions. In November 2021 my book ‘My Family And Other Folklore’ was longlisted for the Nan Shepherd Prize.

Over time I’ve walked a number of the long distance paths in Britain and Northern Ireland - The Pennine Way, The Coast to Coast, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, The Thames Path, The Ridgeway, various pilgrim routes, The Hertfordshire Way, The Monarch’s Way, Offa’s Dyke, the Antrim Way, and so on.

During lockdown I began walking the Appalachian Trail at home along our hallway and using the stairs to get elevation and descent. I’m 60% of the way!
