2016


Not only do I wish you a Happy New Year but one that is equally rewarding and fulfilling. I’ve already begun 2016 as I mean to go on – writing features, exploring new markets and revelling in inspiration. Meanwhile, here’s a quick summary of my articles that hit the presses towards the end of last year.

Country Life: Parchment for Parliament; Landscape: Vicki Brand Upcycling; Buckinghamshire Life: Festive Dining D├ęcor, Pantomime Round Up and 2015 Quiz; Hampshire Life: Romsey Art Group artist profile; Vale Life: Jane Miller; Thame Out: Wordplay column.

This month Tony Clegg is my Hampshire Life artist profile whilst for Buckinghamshire Life I talk to a number of charities in order to encourage everyone to take up volunteering.

February articles have already been submitted and next month’s Ashmolean exhibitions are in the diary. But for now I have half a dozen interviews lined up over the next few days in between which I will also be preparing my Chiltern Writers’ talk about Writing for Magazines.

Finally, whilst colleague and children’s author Nick Halliday is touring various continents for a few months I have taken on distribution of his fabulously successful The Lonely Tree.

Hmm, quite a busy start to the year. Must crack on . . .
