Master of Applied Ethics, with a passion for wider ecological understanding and belonging, I am developing my ecological philosophy Fluminism as literature and “symbioethics” at Manchester Writing School.
I’m a mother first, awildian and caninophile second, and survivor of trauma and cancer.
I have written for the Center of Humans & Nature, Zoomorphic, Earthlines and Resurgence & Ecologist magazines, plus contributions to the book series The Seasons, “Spring” and “Autumn,” published by Elliott & Thompson in conjunction with The Wildlife Trusts (2016).

I have lived in the United States and New Zealand before returning to the UK. You may also find me @seasonalight on Twitter, if not wandering rivers and coasts.
