I have been working as a writer and editor since 1992. I began my career as a writer for Rough Guides - I was their youngest writer at the time, researching and co-writing the first edition of the Rough Guide to India. Since then I have written and co-written seven books, written and edited several websites, worked for press agencies, published articles in newspapers and magazines and collaborated in artistic and creative projects. I've forged lasting links with excellent designers and photographers and we often collaborate in self-led projects and in partnership with organisations charged with looking after the environment.


Having worked independently for many years, I am now doing the majority of my work through my collaborative practice, somewhere-nowhere, with my husband, photographer Rob Fraser. Our work focuses on land and landscape, and issues of place, people and balance, and our work is exhibited across the UK.


My tools include pen and paper, voice recorder, smart phone and compact camera, but all of these are underpinned by curiosity. Never stop exploring.
