A lover of words, a native of Cornwall, an inhabitant of London, a fan of the outdoors, a worshipper of sunshine... I am a writer and Production Editor. Meticulous yet creative, I pride myself on my attention to detail and flair for inspired copy. I am also proficient in writing SEO-friendly copy for websites, and contribute to various magazines as a writer. I write mainly about travel (thanks to my extensive travelling, which, in turn, is thanks to my itchy feet).
