About Me

I put one word in front of another occasionally adding something super-fancy like a semi-colon.

I write SEO web content but for readers as well as Google algorithms, creating content that supports businesses and brands by informing and engaging their readerships.

But it’s not as dry or as dusty as all that.

I tell stories, too.

Writing fiction has helped me become a better blogger and freelancer. Readers, customers, clients want to feel connected to the product, idea or information you’re pushing. Stories help people to relate to things and that’s as true for digital content writing as it is for fiction.

✔️I’ve been shortlisted for a UK Blog Award twice.

✔️EarHugz ranks top for its keywords on Google.

✔️The Pink Wedding Days blog is listed in Veulio’s Top 10 UK LGBTQ blogs.

✔️My short fiction has been published in Mslexia.

✔️I’ve read my work at Birmingham Literature Festival as well as at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery for International Women’s Day.

✔️I have a BA (Hons) in War Studies from King’s College, London.
I’m a better writer than I am barbarian, but I do know my Frederick the Great from my Alfred.

I’ve spent 3 days in North Korea (seriously).

I’m not afraid of a challenge. I’ve trekked through the Himalayas in Nepal to Everest Base Camp and made it to the peak of Kilimanjaro.

I'm trying to learn Welsh...

Angkor Wat in the Rainy Season

Guidebooks will often tell you not to go but don't listen to them. Cambodia's wet season has a lot to offer.


How Does Noise-Cancelling Work?

There are two types of noise-cancellation: passive and active. This post looks at the differences between the two and the technology behind them both.


How Long Does it Take to Make Exercise a Habit?

Comparing the gym in January to the gym in February or March will probably give you some idea of how long it takes to make exercise a habit. Longer than some people’s memberships do, for sure. And yet, probably not as long as some people might think.


Halo Sport Headphones: Neuropriming Your Workout

With the Halo Sport 2 headphones about to be released, we thought we’d take a closer look at what neuropriming your workout actually means and whether or not using neuroscience to improve your fitness and form is ethical and safe.


Running While Female

According to a survey published by Runner’s World in 2017, 43% of women have experienced harassment when running. For women under the age of 30, that number rises to 58%.

Should You Invite a Homophobic Relative to Your Wedding?
